My husband and I were impatiently waiting for a greatly anticipated adoption of a baby. To help pass the time, I took a beginning quilt class and what a life changing event that was! When I finished my first block, I quickly ran to my husband's business and told him I had found what I could do the rest of my life, quilt!


 22 years and 18 children later I have come to realize what a gift quilting was to me. It gave me creative outlets when I was surrounded by toddlers and it provided many wonderful friendships when I had feelings of isolation. Now it had given me the opportunity to start a business sharing my favorite craft. I hope to be able to encourage another young mom or provide a place where women can gather and build new friendships.

I look forward to this new season of my life and hope you will come and join me!

I'm a lifelong sewer, whose Dad taught me to sew at a very young age. It's been a lifelong passion ever since. I enjoy all kinds of techniques, with my current favorites being quilting, machine embroidery, and surface design. I also have experience with garment construction and heirloom techniques.

You'll find me in the shop teaching machine embroidery techniques with Rachel, helping customers troubleshoot their machines, lately I've been teaching some serger techniques classes as well machine sales.
