Education, Sales, Quilter
I've been sewing since I was 9 years old. About 40 years ago, I discovered the world of quilting. I took classes and went to many quilting shows. I visited Sisters, Oregon, about 10 years ago for a quilt show, and I fell in love with the fabrics, colors and quilt designs. After years of sending out my quilts to be quilted, I grew interested in finishing my own quilt toppers. I have also successfully completed the APQS Service Technician Course. Come visit us at The Quilt Barn Studio.
Sales, Marketing, Quilter, Quilt Path Specialist
I worked in the corporate world for 26 years. One day, out of nowhere, came an incredible opportunity and a surprising obsession, quilting? I asked my Mom, who's been quilting for years, if she wanted to go to a beginner quilting class with me. It was then that I realized that quilting wasn't as hard as I imagined and amazingly enough, I realized I was creative! Quilting, for me, is both relaxing and extremely satisfying. I have caught the bug and now I am a quilter! I now hope one day my kids will quilt with me. The cycle continues!
I am an Air Force Veteran and a retired Air Traffic Controller of 31 years.Now I am a Longarm Quilter and loving every moment! My job at QBS is in IT, APQS training, custom quilting. I have successfully completed the Fons & Porter APQS Longarm Certification Course and the APQS Service Technician Course. I learn something new everyday and I truly look forward to spending my day quilting!
