I began to sew when I was only 5 years old, but really "learned" how to sew in Junior High. I even made all of my clothes from then until the patterns no longer fit me properly (grew too much??). In college I was a Fashion Design major. I am a Long Arm Quilter and am a "Certified Square" in a Square quilting instructor. In 2000 I started a successful online quilt shop. I am also a certified Laura Heine Collage Instructor and a Certified Fabric Hoarder (according to my husband).
