    Cool Let Me Introduce Myself.

    My name is Hope Powell and I have been quilting for real for about 9 years. Prior to years ago I had made 2 quilted items but they were small wall hangings.
    My daughter and I decided to take a quilting class and before all was said and done the shop owner convinced me to buy her business as she was moving out of state. I have been quilting ever since. I have sewn all my life so this was not a huge jump but it was a great leap of faith. I love what I do and I love having my daughter with me too.
    After our first year of business we decided to add a long arm quilting machine. What fun!! I love finishing quilts for people and seeing the joy on their face when a project is complete.
    We are located in the mountains of North Carolina and it is a beautiful place to live. The people are wonderful - as are all quilters - and quick to share their knowledge.

    Hello and welcome from New York.
    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.
