I've been sewing since I was 9 and enjoy quilting and applique by machine the most. I'm a retired sewing machine dealer and machine arts instructor. After teaching in my own business for 24 years I retired, and enjoyed sewing for pleasure for two years. After that break I found I was ready to get back into teaching. I've been teaching once or twice a month for the past two & half years at a local shop. It satisfies my need to create and share.
