My love for needle and thread started at age six with a stamped dish towel and floss. My Mother taught me simple garment construction and basic knit stitches and I outfitted myself for many years.

I took my first quilt class in 1972 and we used cardboard templates and sewed everything by hand. Despite that, I continued to quilt with occasional detours into weaving, rug hooking, etc.

I enjoy the challenge of making original quilts with new techniques, but still like traditional piecing and hand applique, and find they can all be used, but usually not all in one quilt.

I'm retired and live in the country with a wonderful husband who never complains about missed meals or missing buttons. (I've offered to show him how to sew them on!) And he never ever asks what anything costs.
