First a little about myself. I am married and have three adult children, and two granddaughters. I live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
I first started piecing quilts in 1998. I have learned a lot since that time and most likely have a lot more to learn.
While visiting quilt shows for several years I always seemed to gravitate towards the demo long arm machines. I then ventured out and purchased a HandiQuilter Sweet 16 Sitdown long arm. I truly loved this machine. After about two years of using that, I decided to start my own business and I upgraded my machine to a HQ Avante 18 with a 12 foot table. Talk about stage freight……I was scared to touch the machine for the first two weeks I had it!!!
I specialize in free motion custom quilting. My quilting is hand driven and not computerized. I just love the creative side of quilting and you will more than likely find me at my long arm more often than I am piecing quilts at my regular sewing machine anymore.
My quilting philosophy is this……I believe that each quilt is special and deserves quilting that accentuates it’s beauty and uniqueness.
While I specialize in custom quilting, I can also provide quilting from edge to edge designs (overall patterns) to custom quilting.
I teach free-motion quilting classes using your home machines, mid-arms, or longarms. These classes enable quilters to finish their own quilts. In each level of classes (beginners, intermediate or advanced) I teach designs that include all over patterns, and designs that will fit into squares, triangles and sashings, so that when you are done with a class you will be able to quilt one of your own quilt tops using what you have learned in class.
I also offer private long arm quilting lessons.
I am a Handi Quilter National Educator and a Superior Threads Certified Threadologist.
Thanks you for taking the time to get to know me and I hope you enjoy my blog!
