With my Residence Economics diploma from the College of Illinois, I’ve labored as an inside designer, managed a craft retailer, supplied customized dressmaking companies and offered materials from my dwelling. I fell in love with heirloom stitching and launched a line of patterns for girls throughout the heirloom business. In 1990, that led to opening my retail cloth retailer and stitching machine dealership in Champaign, IL. After 13 years, I switched to journey and educate nationally and to go completely E-commerce with my patterns, books, and distinctive notions. In 2016 we re-located to Jackson, TN the place I educate ALL ages to stitch in my Sunroom Stitching Studio.
