I have been quilting for over 20 years. I am Canadian and winter in Arizona so have quilting connections in both areas and know of Quilt Shops in between. I am married to a man that has a T-shirt that says "Quilter's Hero". That should tell you something about him. I have 2 good looking sons and 2 very beautiful grand-daughters who when asked last summer what they would like to do for the week they spent with us, answered, " We want to learn to Quilt". They were 8 and 11. I have taught quilting to Grade 5 children as well as adults. I rather call myself a "facilitator" than a teacher, because the sharing and the interest that happens in these quilt classes is what has made me love the whole quilting process.
