My Story

Back in about 2004, I saw a TV program demonstrating a longarm quilting machine & knew instantly that’s what I wanted to do. So I started saving up to buy one but some other expense always seemed to get in the way. Then my son wrecked his pickup & my husband went and bought him a new one. Instead of throwing a hissy fit, I marched into my local quilt shop & ordered my longarm machine (on credit). Oh no, now I have to figure out how to pay for a pickup AND a longarm! So I took over part of the garage & started quilting customer quilts in my spare time. Business did well so I started carrying a small selection of fabrics & then I started designing patterns to go with the fabrics. February 28, 2011 was the last day of my “real” job and I haven’t looked back since!

Happy Quilting!
