I started sewing when I was 7. My greatgrandmother and my mother were my teachers. I sew just about everything but I also knit, embroider, and cross stitch. My greatest love is my quilting. Most of my quilts are designed by myself. My husband and I are now retired. I love quilting so much that I must quilt everyday and I get great joy out of sharing my creations with you. Custom orders are always welcome.

Hey Sue! I just opened your box and wanted to tell you how beautiful the T-Shirt quilt is !!! It brought tears to my eyes to think that my son will have those happy memories forever! Thank you so much! - Michele

I wanted to take the time to let you know how wonderful the quilt you made is. My wife has a quilt here at the house that is literally falling apart. It was made by her grandmother some 30 years ago and it is time for its retirement. I had been searching for a worthy replacement, and the quilt, Country Garden, 'that you have created exceeds all my expectations for this very special Christmas gift. The quilt was thoughtfully pieced together with beautiful colors, and noticeable pride in craftsmanship. This is a keepsake that will be in our family for years to come. Thank you again for this great quilt; and for keeping a time-honored tradition alive in our country. -
Jason Chabot , U.S.

The quilt (Play Ball) arrived safely yesterday. It is beautiful. My husband and I can't wait to give it to our daughter when she delivers our new Grandson! (She's due 9/14.) Thanks again and I will certainly pass your name and website to others. - Tracy K., Washington

My grandson has his Colorful Baby Quilt and his parents are delighted with it. I still have the one my mother made for my son but it has been ' loved to pieces'.
We shall enjoy your wonderful work for a long time. THANK YOU. Andrew, British Columbia
