I'm a native San Diegan who loves to sew, period. Sewing by hand or on a machine gives me great satisfaction and comfort. As a young girl I watched my mother sew, and it was "she" that put a needle in my hand with embroidery floss, and handed me a pre-printed dresser scarf to embroider. A stem stitch, a lazy daisy, a French knot, and you’re set! So began my love of sewing.
Today I'm proud to say that I've come a long way since I embroidered that dresser scarf. At the San Diego Quilt Show in 2015 I entered my quilt, "How does your garden grow?" in the Primitive Category and won a Blue Ribbon! A first, and so exciting.
In November of 2016 I had two of my quilts chosen to be displayed at the Houston International Quilt Festival. "How does your garden grow?" and "Wool Crazy". Both were displayed in the Primitive/Folk Art Special Exhibit. I am very honored and thrilled to be recognized for my lifelong sewing passion.
I'm delighted to be teaching at the San Diego Quilt Show again this year. I truly enjoy teaching and being a part of the friendships that are made in class. I am inspired by what the students teach me!!!
