About / Contact

I am a mom to two adorable little girls, Olivia and Isabelle, and wife to a wonderful husband, Bill. Together we live in the heart of the United States - Dayton, OH.

Sewing found me in adulthood serendipitously, though I was exposed to it at a young age by my mom and grandmothers. My grandmother was a prolific quilter, and my mom an excellent seamstress, making many of my clothes when I was a little girl.

In the summer of 2009, I was taken by a friend to a "real" fabric shop. Before then, all I knew were the big box stores. She took me to a LQS where I caught the bug - the sewing bug! Before the day was over, I spent an inordinate amount of money on enough fabric to make several quilts. And I haven't stopped since.

A member of the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild, blogger, and now fabric shop owner, sewing has become an integral part of my life. I get so much joy out of making projects, giving handmade gifts, and the friendships that have formed with fellow creatives.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the Internet. If you'd like to reach me, feel free to leave a comment on one of the posts or email me.
