I am a soon-to-be unemployed fiber fanatic. Unfortunately, the fabric/quilt/sewing machine store that I work for is closing it's doors. I have been working in this shop and others for the last 12 years or more. My specialties are Bernina Sewing Machines and also teaching quilting, sewing and other customer support. On the weekends or my time off I spend as much time in my sewing space at home, as I can get away with. My passion lately is creating bags, and I have also begun to dabble a little bit with painting fabric, stamping... experimenting with new materials. What fun! We are so lucky to have so many wonderful resources available to us. I love love love Interweave publications, especially Quilting Arts and Cloth.Paper, Scissors !
