Quilting entered my life through a library book and cereal box templates; twenty-three years later it is my entire life. I am enamored by the intricacies and history of quilt-making, including its overlap with the women's rights movements of the past century. My specialties include curved piecing (die-cut, improv, tools), needle-turn and raw-edge appliqué and construction techniques. In addition to quilting topics, I present on making a career in the quilting industry (publishing, manufacturing, and retail).
