Hello everyone! I'm a longtime quilter and recent machine embroidery nut. There just aren't enough hours in the day for the amount of crafting I want to do, so I have to pick wisely. I enjoy learning new techniques and using the latest in rulers and gadgets to make sewing faster. My travels include multiple quilting conferences, both in Utah and Iowa, as well as here in Washington. I've been on bus trips around the mid-west with my mom and she and I make an every other year trip to Sister's Oregon for the outdoor quilt show. If it's quilting, fabric, retreating, or the like, I'm IN!
