My extremely talented Mom began teaching me to sew when I was 5. Years ago, I had my own fashion design/tailoring business where I made everything from men's tuxedos to original wedding gowns. My delightful daughter-in-law, a long-arm quilter herself, encouraged me to try my hand at quilting and it shortly became a passion. I make mostly wall art quilts and quilt on my sit down Bernina Q20. I retired in 2012 to spend full time in my quilt studio.
