My Mom taught me to sew the summer before I started Jr. High School. I took sewing classes in Jr. High, High School, College as well as other sewing classes at local stores. While my children were small, I made most of their clothes as well as their cousins in Arizona. When my husband and I moved to Houston, Texas in September 2001 I started taking Quilting classes. I knew then, that not only Houston was where I needed to be but quilting was my passion. In November 2006 at the Houston International Quilt Festival I purchased a Gammill Long Arm Machine. This machine would be able to help me do a professional job on all my quilts. I love all the steps in making a quilt, but doing the final step of quilting is my favorite. Since November 2006 I have quilted 75 quilts on my long arm. I've made quilts for charity groups, family and a few for me. I hope I will be around for many more years, because now I have a rather large stash of fabric to use. We have sold our home in Texas and we are now living in Hawaii.
