Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I taught myself to sew at age 7 and have been sewing ever since. My husband bought me a "State of the Art" Singer when we married 49 years ago, but three years ago, I sadly told him it had died. So he told me to go out and look for a new one. Little did he know I already knew what I wanted, a Bernina. So I went to the closest dealer and picked the one I wanted (well, let me say, the one I thought my husband wouldn't have a heart attack when he went to buy it for my anniversary present). Anyway, for a long time I wanted to make a quilt. Two years ago I had major surgery which would require a six month recovery period. So, I figured this was the perfect time to learn to make a quilt (via UTube and a delightful lady from the Bernina dealer who is a quilting QUEEN). I ordered fabric and everything I would need, and as I progressed in my recovery, cut the fabric and eventually made a king sized quilt with 64 free motion butterflies. And I am hooked. I have two projects going. And we recently moved and found two quilt tops that my deceased mother-in-law had hand quilted. One is a Texas Lone Star, which I see she had some problems with. She had started to take some pieces apart at the center to make it lie flat. I do not dare touch it. And I need someone experienced with working on something that is probably 50 years old to fix, and complete. The other is hand made blocks with the state bird of every state embroidered on it and Alaska and Hawaii had been added at a time after the original piece had been started. I'm not sure what to do with that one. I can go on and on, but I'll quit for now.
