We are both certified Quilt in a Day teachers and YES...Eleanor Burns is as wonderful in person as she is on TV!
I began quilting in 1992 while recovering from surgery. My husband Perry suggested I take that quilt class that I'd been pondering about for some time. I lovingly blame him for the fabric and machines that have taken over our home!
Beth and I met at a charity night quilt group meeting and became fast friends. Since then we haven't slowed down! New ideas, quilt functions, quilt classes, quilt shows, longarms etc. (I've got a Babylock Crown Jewel and Beth has a Millennium).
My love of quilting began in 1976 when I made my first quilt. I have not stopped since! I managed to quilt while teaching 6th graders for 33 years - my favorite grade. I retired in June 2010, and my husband and I moved from California to New Mexico where I purchased my longarm machine (a long desired dream). Over the years I have met and made wonderful friends through our passion of quilting. These friendships are valued and never forgotten.
My husband of 40+ years has always encouraged and supported me in my quilting endeavors!
