Q: Tell us a little about yourself…
I am a mother of a 28 year old son, have a 7 year old grandson and have been with my partner for 30 years! After working for a long time as a laborer I returned to college and became a correctional officer. I love to sew and quilt ...this has led to my opening my shop on Etsy...I do a lot of custom work and have my crafts in a number of craft shops on consignment. In the future, my dream is to have a shop of my own and craft full time!
Q: How long have you been doing this?
I started quilting when I became a correctional officer 13 years ago and that lead to sewing other items.
Q: Who/What inspires you?
Fabrics inspire me...I see something and right away I know what I want to do with it...I have so many projects lined up that I am sure I will never get done...but I am working on it!
Q: What's your favorite piece?
My favorite would be the blue sampler quilt I made for myself but never finished in time to use...I changed my room decor before I was done hand quilting. There is a picture of it on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/23212151@N04/
Q: If you could meet anyone living or dead, who would it be & why?
I am a country and western fan...I would love to meet Reba McEntire....”Is there life out there” was our theme song when I graduated from college!!
Q: If Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter dueled, who would win? Why?
No idea ...do not watch tv or movies...lol..no time ...I sew and chat on line to my Etsy friends!
