I am a Longtime supporter of Veterans Services.

In addition to publishing my own patterns, I design patterns for a couple of major quilt magazines. Like: American Quilter Magazine, Quilters Newsletter, and most recently I made the cover of Generation Q Magazine (September/October 2015). In addition to the above I am also a Island Batik Brand Ambassador and I and thrill to share my new page here called “All Great Things Sulky” where I am an Endorsed Designer and I was just approved as on of Sulky’s Newest Affiliates. So hop on over here to my new page to see all things new with Sulky Thread. And just wrote my first book available here called Free Motion Quilting on a Domestic Machine.
