I am a wife to a wonderful man, mother of 3 sons, stepmom to 4, grandmother to 11. I “found” quilting around 1997 and subsequently nourished my addiction to fabric, sewing, and now longarm quilting. My husband says he knows I’m not well if he hasn’t heard the word “quilt” by 10 am.
I use a Gammill Classic Plus to quilt customer quilts. Having other quilters quilts to quilt has made me stretch my abilities and study design. I am so grateful for those challanges. Without it, I would probably be in the same old rut and not increasing my abilities. My tag line on my business cards is “Spreading God’s Love Through Quilted Comfort.” That is where my heart is. God has given me the ability to do this. Now I must use it to comfort others. So I do as many Quilts of Valor (www.qovf.org) and Quilts of Love (a Sandhills Quilters Guild project for members having difficulty) as possible.
I’m also the Mom to a Minature Schnauzer who rules this household and delights both my husband and I. He is my quilt baby who must snuggle against any quilt available. He also likes to compute.
