As a little girl I learned from two of my grandmothers, and my mother how to sew, embroidery, make clothes and do arts and crafts. They were always into something done by their hands. My grandmother, Marie was a quilter and I was always admired her ability, but it just seemed overwhelming how she could make a quilt. I just did not see the blocks.
In October 2007 I took a beginning quilting class at Sew Contempo, taught by Linda Wells. I finished my top and I was given Denise Green’s name for a quilter. I learned very quickly that there was a line, so I waited my turn. I got it quilted and then I put it all away; put my new machine in its bag and placed it in the bottom of the closet.
In September 2009, my husband’s family learned that my sister-in-law, Cindy was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Cindy was a quilter as well, she taught me how important it was to finish my projects. I got my quilt out of the closet and she helped me trim it and bind it.
In January 2010, I took my second class from Deborah Borsos at The Painted Pony and I’ve been hooked/addicted ever since. She taught me how to be better and to want to achieve more.
I enjoy learning and getting to know people and it is an added bonus if I get to teach what I know.
