I am a 41 year old quilter, wife, mother, and grandmother. I have one more child left at home (a beautiful 15 yo daughter). I have the most wonderful husband - he supports me in whatever whim I might have at the moment. I live in the beautiful town of Cumberland Gap, TN. It is where TN, KY, and VA all come together. It is quaint and Mayberry-like. We moved here in July 2009 from Michigan and have never regretted the decision. Ten years ago, upon my announcement that I wanted to learn to quilt, my husband traded an antique sewing machine he had for my first sewing machine. I have been hooked from the very first stitch. Eventually I started teaching quilting in the local libraries (in MI) and enjoyed that beyond words. Now that I am in the Gap, there are no opportunities like that but I love my sewing room and my many online quilting friends.
