Annette began sewing when she was introduced to the joy of making garments while in High School. Knowing that she could use her skills to make clothing the way she wanted, developed the love of creating with fabric. After getting married and starting a family, Annette was invited to attend her first quilt piecing class, so the journey of quilting began.
In 2009 Annette purchased her first longarm machine, the HQ Sixteen®. It was the start of a special relationship with quilting. Annette discovering what could be done on a longarm machine by taking classes that helped her gather as much knowledge to expand her quilting ability. In 2018 the purchase of the HQ Amara® brought more exciting possibilities. It wasn’t long after when the ProStitcher® was added and her business, The Quilting “Look”, was born.
Annette loves to quilt for herself and family but finds great joy in the smiles she receives when putting the finishing touches of quilting for her customer’s. Although she enjoys quilting for others, her true passion is teaching. Sharing what she can with new and longtime quilters by hosting classes in person and virtually. Knowing that each quilter can always expand their knowledge and being able to help with that process has always been longtime goal.
Annette is someone that enjoys people, getting to know them and sharing common interests. She and her husband, Chet, live in North Central Kansas. They love to travel and experience new adventures.
