How I Started
I became hooked on quilting after I took an introductory class through the local community college. That class led to more advanced classes, and quickly grew into a love for quilting.
After a few quilts and the labor of actually “quilting” a large quilt I got interested in machine quilting, or “long-arming” to speed up the process. After a lot of research and thought I purchased an “A1 longarm machine” and began the long learning process.
After many months of experimentation, training, and practice, I began to take on customer quilting projects. From day one, I’ve continually strived to advance my skills and capabilities, all the while seeking out new techniques to make my customer’s quilts look their best.
My work ranges from simple quilting to complex, intricate, custom projects. From the techniques and the patterns to the thread colors, I enjoy working with customers to determine the right designs for each of their quilts. If you are not a quilter and would like a commissioned piece, that can be done also. I have done t-shirt and memory quilts, as well as wholecloth pieces.
For over 11 years I have focused on high-quality custom machine quilting. While my first “A1” does the stitching, I hand guide the machine through it's paces adding that personal touch that you are seeking. No two designs, and no two quilts are exactly the same. I personally quilt each of the custom quilted projects. My second "A1" machine has the IQ computerized quilting system which allows me to get the edge to edge (pantographs) patterns completed quickly.
