As a young girl, my grandmother taught me how to embroider and bought me my first sewing machine. My Mom tried to teach me to knit. However, I’m a lefty and I had a hard time catching on from her example. They both fueled in me a love of crafting of all sorts–cross stitch, crewel embroidery, plastercraft, garment and costume sewing, macrame and miniatures. I have always loved sewing, fabric and quilts, though. When I learned to quilt in 2003 it ignited a passion that hasn’t been quenched since. I live and dream quilting!
