Hi, my name is Karen and I am from Rockford, Mi. i have been sewing since I was 12 and now hooked on quilting. I love making quilts and bags. I just got myself a new Pfaff, the new Performance 5.0 and love it so far. My old machine is also a Pfaff, 2020 Tiptronic and what a great machine it has been but I wanted the thread cutter! I am married, a semi retired RN, four children and seven grandchildren! Life is busy! So far I am loving this site.
