Most of my quilting has been for family and friends. I have in the
past year started entering a few Quilt Shows and Challenges. I was

I worked for “the Phone Company” for several years in computer
support before I had my first child and became a stay home Mom. The
hardest and most important job in the world in my view.
Now I do live in Missouri on a small farm in a log
cabin, we built. I love it; it’s like a dream come true. I have
been married for 21 years to a wonderful supportive husband, who is
a military pilot. He is my business partner and tech support. We
have 3 great kids... 15,12, and 2. Yippes…it’s that two year old

in flannels for my youngest son and a Christmas Story kit for my
(then) soon-to-come granddaughter! I have never looked back! Dedra
has been my inspiration and my mentor. After working for 27 years
at the “Phone Company” and my youngest gone to college – I was ripe
for a vocation with meaning and depth. What better than quilting??
I now have a Long-arm machine and am finishing my 5th
quilt in July ’08. I’m looking forward to many years of quilting
was born in Missouri, but my folks were busy traveling with my
father’s work so I got to experience many states and many schools
until we moved back to the farm just in time for high school. After
college – I traveled to the “Big City” and spent the next 30 years
working and raising my family. Now, my husband & I have one of
Dedra’s Springers, stay busy keeping up with church, children,
grandchildren, real estate and now quilting!
