My focus is to provide a professional longarm (machine quilting) service that is based on quality, creativity, trust and care for the fabric artwork you have created. It is important to me that when your quilt is returned to you, the quilting makes you smile because it is aesthetically pleasing as well as complementary to your quilt. I take pride in understanding that each project is not just another quilt...it is your quilt...which is special to you, and I take some time to give your project the attention it deserves.
My mission is to provide machine quilting which is inspired by the customer's quilt creation and to bring the story behind each quilt top to life.
I am excited to be on this adventure and hope to be the quilting artist you choose to meet your machine quilting needs. I began sewing when I was in the 5th grade (oh, so long ago) when I was a member of a local 4-H. Even back then, I enjoyed creating something unique with my own hands. After high school, I continued to make my own clothes because I didn't like the idea of wearing the same clothes as other people. I never did mind standing out from the crowd a little bit (I am a Gemini, after all). I dabbled in crocheting and knitting with my Mom but continued to enjoy creating projects on a sewing machine. I had been considering retiring from a standard 9-5 job when I attended a quilt show in Davenport, IA. I happened to walk by a woman who was operating a longarm machine and I was like a kid with a new toy as I watched her experiment with patterns that she had not yet used. I was enticed by the idea of creating different quilt stitching (quilting) and set off to form a plan to purchase a long-arm quilting machine. Now, here I am. Hoping to be the longarmer you choose to meet your machine quilting needs for the quilt you have lovingly created.
