About me:  I have been sewing for over 44 years.  My mother was a professional tailor where I learned from her many precious skills and techniques, along with some classes that I have taken how to sew, quilt and love it.  As a young mother I made all of mine and my children's clothing along with suits for my husband.  I guess, you could say that  the love for sewing was gifted to me by my mother. I thank her for it.

All of my work is done with love and detail.  I would never give a quilt to anyone that I would not cherish myself. 

I worked as a designer for 18 years in furniture sales. Putting together model homes and helping people decorate theirs all the while still sewing.  I retired in 1999 at which time I decided that because of my love for sewing I would like to sew as a hobby making quilts, crafts and clothing.  Well, that turned into requests for my abiities and I started sewing for others.  Since then I have made dozens of quilts. 

I hope that you enjoy looking at my quilts and that I can make a wonderful memory for you as well. 

I only showed the pricing of the memory quilts.  Any other quilt projects the pricing will be discussed at our initial consultation.

I want to give special thanks to my wonderful daughter-in-law who spent many coutless hours creating this website for me, and for my husband and our other children and their spouses for encouraging me to have a website and to my husband for purchasing me a new sewing machine so that my quilts and projects come out perfect.
