I have been sewing since I was 5 years old. I began making quilts about 20 years ago. I joined a quilt group at a church I attended in Henderson, NV. We made comfort quilts for cancer patients. I moved on to another church there and began making quilts for that church for ill people and for missions. I now reside in Idaho. I am retired and have added an APQS Lenni to my collection of sewing machines. I took one class about how to use a long arm but I have basically taught myself. I have quilted approximately 200 quilts since I bought Lenni. Most of those have been for our church and for the Rescue Mission. I have been quilting for some of my friends and neighbors for hire. I just love making quilts from start to finish.
