l am a retired high school counselor. I learned to sew as a child at my grandmother's knee. I've been quilting for many years and am now able to spend a lot of my time devoted to this passion. My how sewing machines and technology has changed since watching my grandmother sew on her prized Singer Treddle sewing machine.
