I love living in the country with my wonderful husband Rich, my parrot Ruby, and our cats. Oh, did I mention quilts? I LOVE quilts!

Like so many of you, I have been sewing and crafting for as far back as I can remember. My love for traditional quilts and quilting began in the late 1970s. When the decision was made in 2007 to close our family business of 34 years, I had already begun my longarm quilting business on a part-time basis, which quickly expanded to full-time. In 2011 a computerized Statler Stitcher was added to help keep pace with demand.

I love my job and I love my clients! I am so proud to be a part of the quilting community and honored to be chosen and trusted by my clients.
