I have always been a crafty DIY type of person who enjoys making things with my hands. My sewing journey began 26 years ago on industrial machines. I was the owner of a marine canvas shop where I created upholstery from canvas and vinyl for a variety of settings. This is where I fell in love with sewing and wanted to make things for my home and purchased a domestic machine. I made clothing and accessories before finding my love of piecing and creating quilts. Quilting on a domestic machine for most of that time I finally moved to a stationary HQ Sweet Sixteen® long arm and then
moved up to a HQ Forte® long arm with Pro Stitcher® Premium. I worked for a local sewing gallery for the past 4 years where I instructed new owners how to use their new machines and/or software. I also planned and taught many creative classes that focused on all the ways
to use their sewing machines, embroidery machines and embroidery software program.

I love teaching all types of classes and helping others to realize they too can “Make That”.
