My grandmother was an incredible seamstress. She did it all-from tailored suits to quilts. One of my most prized possessions is a worn "Grandmother's Flower Garden" made from my mother and aunt’s dresses when they were children. Fwa-fa (my childhood name for her) passed her love of sewing onto my mother who in turn taught me to sew when I was five. My mother began quilting in 1982 and finally enticed me to try my hand at it in 1989. That was it, no more garments for me. Now I had a palette of fabrics in every hue and texture with hundreds of designs to work with. In 1994, I talked Mom into opening a quilt shop with me. I have been passing on my love of sewing ever since.

My philosophy for teaching quilting has always been that the student should have fun, learn, and love the outcome of their endeavors. Which has brought about the development of my new tool the "Sew Shabby Chic Block Builder Tool". With this tool the student learns the fundamentals of cutting and piecing without the worry of measurements or math. Each block turns out perfectly and builds the quilter’s confidence. The end result is a beautiful quilt and a new quilter.
