Get to Know

I've been sewing for years and then migrated to other needlecrafts, from cross-stitch to crewel to counted cross-stitch. After my retirement from teaching I accompanied a good friend to a quilt shop where she worked part time.

I was HOOKED. From then on I was quilting. I enjoy both piecing and applique work. Since I thought that sending a quilt out to have a long armer do it took away something from me I began doing my own free motion work ..still have a way to go to be perfect, but what is perfection?!

I'm originally from Massachusetts, but have been here in Michigan for almost 5 years. Creating in my home on the lake relaxes me. It's a peaceful place to piece! Don't think I could go back to the small town I left. There it was a small town; here it would be a city!

If you see something that you like but the color just isn't what you need or see something hand embroidered on a wall hanging and you'd like it to say something else, just contact me and we probably can work it out.
