I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from Bloomsburg University. This business background has helped me build my small quilting business. I also am a mother of three children. For many years, I was a stay at home mom while the children were young. But, like all children, I blinked my eyes and they grew up! My youngest is 21. Now my days are filled with making Memory Quilts. I have been creating Memory Quilts since 2011.
I grew up with a mom who loved to quilt too. Her quilting was beautiful. She sewed everything by hand-from the piecing to the actual quilting to the binding. It was all done by hand. I remember she used to count the number of stitches she made per inch! Today, sewing machines and long arm quilting machines are used to piece and quilt. The machines do a fabulous job, but, my mother would never consider them authentic since they weren't stitched by hand! Every now and then, I have to hand stitch a few things in a quilt so that my mom would approve!
