Ohio City, CO

My name is Laurene. In May 2012, I left my fancy computer consulting job to become a full-time longarm quilter. It was the best thing that I have ever done! I cannot wait to wake up every morning and go to my studio. I have been sewing since I was a little girl; I used to sew everything I ever wore. Then, I got into quilting in the early 1990s. Quilting has really changed since then, but I love every kind of quilting!
