Get to Know

Live in Amsterdam, NY with husband, Chuck. Have 2 daughters & 2 grand-daughters living in Siloam Springs, AR. I learned to sew in pre-teens. 1970's began first business: "Carol's Calico Country" while in Brooklyn, NY making machine appliqued tote bags, appliques, skirts, etc. Began making quilts while living in Chatham, NY in late 1970's. Became certified color consultant in 1980's. Business evolved with learning new skills on sewing machine and computer to become "cmhCreations". Now my bags are all reversible and come in 3 styles: 2 handle tote, shoulder strap purse, drawstring bag. Children's bags and pillow cases and quilts with matching plush animal are favorites. Joining "Loving Hands in All Seasons" quilt guild has challenged me to many new skills and projects. Now making many charity quilts and church banners.
