About Me
I really love to quit but I have a neurological disease affecting my ability to control my hands, eyes and limbs. I am determined to keep quilting for as long as I can.

With 4 grand children, three sons, their wives and about 100 neices and nephews (I quit counting when I became a great-great Aunt. I have 9 brothers and sisters (a great support group of our own).

Quilting has become my favorite therapy and I love full rich colors (maybe because my eyesight is failing?) I find that they seem to re-charge my energy levels.

I am lookoing for a good sewing machine needle threader. I bought one that was from out of the country. It was difficult to use, required good eyesight and fell apart the first time I used it. Any suggestions short of buying a newmachine?
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, paper piecing, hand quilting, machine quilting, general sewing
My pets are awesome!
Chocolate Lab named Magnum, who never leaves my side.

about Me

I have since purchased a janome that threads it's own needle and quilts and embroiders much easier than the one I had. I have found magnifiers to attach to my machine that enlarge the view of the stitch area and cutting machines that will cut the fabric for me. the machine even quilts and provides stitches to suit your fancy.I am a happy camper!
