Sewing since I was able to climb on to the chair in front of my mother's sewing machine. She said "I taught you to sew out of self defense." Began quilting in 1977, when I graduated from high school. I think I am one of the few graduating seniors that received a spinning wheel as a graduation present. Learned to embroider and do crewel work at an early age. Crochet, knitting and weaving. Lace techniques and dying. Degrees in Home Economics (clothing & textiles) and Art (craft concentration). Shown quilts nationally and internationally. Volunteer scout leader with the BSA. Latest career: teacher (K-12).
