Back in 2009 i purchased a used Gammill longarm quilting machine in hopes of making a little extra $ to help send my sons to college. Oh wow! I never imagined how much I would LOVE my new adventure!
Before that, I was a full time stay at home mom, volunteering in just about everything...even the local quilt shop. You'll find me in the 2002 Quilt Sampler magazine, just my picture, nothing more. lol :) I believe those days fueled my passion and here i am today, longarm quilting for clients, teaching classes at local quilt shops, and designing patterns. You'll find more about me and my work on my quilting blog: laugh yourself into Stitches* http://chezstitches.blogspot.com/
Other than hit by the quilting bug...i love antiques, repurposing junk and digging in the dirt... but most of all, spending time with family...nothing better than that!
Update: In March 2015, i sold my Gammill friend (it was a sad parting!) and bough a new Innova Longarm with an AutoPilot. Most of my longarm work is stitching all over pantographs for clients. The AutoPilot allows me to get off my feet (they were getting tired) while it stitches the pattern. I love my Innova too! It gives me the ability to continue quilting free hand too...which i love!
