I love to quilt!

My mother taught me to sew when I was a girl. Over the years, I’ve explored many types of needlework — needlepoint, embroidery, ribbon work, cross stitch, applique and hand and machine sewing. During the 1980′s I worked for a needlework company teaching and demonstrating their products. I also have an art background, including design, drawing and painting in different media.

The first quilt I completed was for my daughter Melissa, in 1982. After a break while working and raising children, I went back to quilting in the 1990′s have been quilting ever since!

Some of my quilts are hand quilted, but most are machine pieced and quilted. I started quilting on a small sewing machine, then graduated to a quilt frame and mid-arm quilting machine. I have a wonderfully set up quilt room in our home in Anderson, SC, where I love to spend time.

At last count, I’ve made over 225 quilts, as well as purses, pillows, Christmas decor, and other decorative accessories. Over 90 of these were wedding dress quilts and pillows. This has given me extensive experience creating unique, custom quilts.

Quilting provides me much personal enjoyment, I donate quilts to charity and make quilts for wonderful customers. In July of 2012, I decided to expand my horizons and offer my services to the public.
