I've been sewing since I was a teenager. My first sewing machine was a Pfaff 130. I graduated to a Janome just about 3 years ago. Talk about an upgrade!. Took my first quilting class about 1990, and was hooked. Traditional patterns, art, and crazy quilts are what I enjoy doing. That crazy quilt is about to drive my crazy, though. I've started a quilt for the Alzheimer's Quilt Initiative, so it's a very small quilt. Can't wait to get it finished so that I can see the result.
