I have been sewing since I was 12 years old and belonged to a 4-H Club. I have sewn clothes for myself and my four children. I never like to see any fabric go to waste so I am known as the scrap queen in my small quilting group. I make many different quilted items such as quilts, wall hangings, purses and home decor. I love any kind and color of fabric. I do mending and quilting for other people. Most recently I purchased a quilting frame and a sewing machine so now I am learning how to quilt the tops of quilts.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, paper piecing, hand quilting, machine quilting, crazy quilting, general sewing
My pets are awesome!

When did you live in Boyden? I'm originally from Rock Rapids, but moved to the Mason City area in 1969, then moved to Sheldon in 1985, then to Sanborn in 1994. Been here ever since, but we are moving to the Lakes area where my DH works this summer. Do you still have relatives in the area?

Hi Trip and welcome to our group. You will never meet a more fun, nicer and talented bunch! I really hope that you enjoy this group and make some friends.
I'm in DBQ, just up the road. If you ever get up this direction, let me know and perhaps we can get together. I'm always looking for some one to encourage my fabric habit.
Can't wait to see some of your work and I look forward to chatting with you!!
