In 2000 I retired after working for Denver Health for 30 years. With retirement brought the opportunity to meet new people and learn new things. My sister and her daughter introduced me to quilting, a hobby they had been enjoying for 10 years. I now wonder what took me so long to get the quilting bug. Once I started I was hooked!!

I have been making quilt tops since 2000 and have completed many quilts of my own. I found I loved the process of quilting the quilts more than the piecing of the quilt tops. I also quickly realized that the finishing of the quilt tops on a domestic machine took a lot of coordination and physical strength. I had to figure out a way to get the accuracy I wanted in my quilting but without the back and shoulder pain that working on a domestic machine caused. I discovered that the computerized long arm system was the answer for me. It gives me the accuracy and flexibility I want plus the opportunity to make each quilt distinctive.

I purchased a Gamill Statler computerized long arm quilting machine. It has been a wonderful decision for me.

I’m always interested in learning new things and I continue to improve my skills in quilting design and execution. I have attended local and national conventions and classes.   In 2014 the Statler software was upgraded with many new techniques.  I have taken many from award winning and national known teachers such as Georgia Stull, Page Johnson and Sue Patten.  The classes were excellent and I learned so much.

I donate my quilting services to Organ Donor Alliance (these quilts presented to organ donor family), and Hands All Around. 

 

I’m looking to expand my customer base.

I would love the opportunity to finish your quilt tops for you.
