For years I primarily hand-quilted and did a few on the old sewing machine – that was a pain. So in 2004 as we were planning a new home, my husband & I discussed getting a “long-arm” table for my machine – so I could do more for myself. I had done plenty of custom sewing for people over the years – wedding dresses, choral dresses, bridesmaid dresses, even draperies. I really hadn’t thought about doing quilting for people – but then we started thinking about the future.
So in 2007 I started researching in-depth. I spent about 3 months working with another long arm quilter until I had the financing arranged to get my own machine and tada! Here we are today with over 700 quilts completed! I also decided to do design work as well! Gammill-Statler has a few of them that they give to new long-arm quilters when they buy a machine and Ellen Munnich at http://www.quiltrecipes.com is my sole distributor – she sells them to long-arm quilters that use Gammill and other machine types.
I love it all! From the creative process to the happy satisfied customers! And I have some great customers that I love & adore – many have become great friends!
