I started very young with crochet and embroidery taught to me by my mother. I then took 2 years of sewing in high school and made a lot of my clothes and clothing for both of my sisters. I have 2 embroidery machines and am looking to combine quilting and embroidery. I have to say I'm a beginner in the quilting arena but hope to take classes and continue to learn. I have a certain style I want to create, it's just figuring out how to get there.
