Custom Quilting with a personal touch
Welcome to my website. Feel free to explore the various pages and contact me if you have any questions. I love to sew and quilt and have developed a wide range of classes to help others be creative. As things ease up, I'll be offering more in person classes.
More Good News!
As of March 17, I've been shot once! Hubby did a wonderful job of getting me in early for my first vaccination. I'm allowing customers in for a short while to drop off their quilts and have a brief consultation. I'm keeping the rental studio closed for now but as more of us get vaccinated, I am sure things will be closer to normal soon. Give me a shout by email or text message and I'll get back to you with a booking time.
AND I've posted a listing of a new series of live zoom classes using the Studio 180 Design tools. Check it out here!
Good News/Bad News!!!!
January 11, 2021. I updated the website in the fall and had re-opened the rental studio. Unfortunately, we are keeping the studio closed at the moment to adhere to local Covid-19 guidelines. I am still taking in quilts to quilt for you. You can book your quilt in easily with an email. Full details of Covid Quilting can be found on the Longarm Studio page.
I've created some blocks using Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Design Tools. I've scheduled 6 classes over the next few months where we'll learn how to use these tools and make some fabulous and accurate quilt blocks. Follow the link for the Monday Makes. I'll also be scheduling 2 other quilt classes for the new year, again using Studio 180 Design tools. If you are interested in these quilt classes, contact me.
I've got an online class available for immediate download and watching! I'm so excited to offer this class and hope to get more classes posted soon. Alpha Banners - bless this house. The pattern ($7.50) is included in the cost of the class. Check it out and send me pictures of your Alpha Banners!
