    Brand New to Sewing

    Hello. My name is Karen. I live in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I am starting easy quilting so that I can surround myself with beauty I love Amy Butler fabrics.

    Welcome from New York State. I also like Amy Butler's fabrics.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Well, thanks for asking! Years ago on Etsy.com I accidentally found a shower curtain made from Amy Butler fabric. That is how I found out about Amy Butler. For years I have admired things that others have made and in most instances cost a lot on Etsy. It finally dawned on me this August that I have an expert quilter friend who could show me how to make my own Amy Butler quilt--and who knows what else I could sew once I learned that! Thanks again for asking. How about you?
