I have one husband, one son, one dog, and four sewing machines.

Textiles are my first love and part of my earliest memories. Name a textile technique and I've most likely heard of it, tried it, or want to try it in the future. I studied textiles in college and I've been continuing that education ever since.

Right now I'm most passionate about quilting.

I use pseudonyms for my husband and son because I'm not crazy about nicknames or initials.
