I am a wife, a mom of five kids, an educator, an eternal optimist, a community builder, and a free motion quilting activist. I have a long arm quilting business where I quilt tops for people. I teach free motion and quilting classes, and one day a week I work at my local quilt shop. I made my first quilt when I was 19, but I really started quilting 13 years ago. In June of 2016, I got a longarm quilting machine, and haven’t looked back.
