    Saying hello from PA!

    Hi everyone I've been doing something with fabric and thread since I was a young girl with grandmothers and aunts who did their own garments and quilts. I loved it so much, I ran a custom sewing business for awhile, but got burnt out with always being on a deadline, needing perfection, and not having creative license.

    I'm just now starting to sew again for my own pleasure, and want to focus my efforts on quilting to carry on the tradition of the women in my family. I love all sorts of sewing and crafty type things and am an admitted (and unrepentant) fabriholic and embroidery design collector.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
