Sharon has a long background in fabrics. She was head designer-owner of Deja Vu and Time and Eternity fashions in Phoenix, Arizona for over twenty-five years. This included both upscale bridal and formal wear. Her work was worn by Miss Arizona in the Miss U.S.A. pageant and many other notables. It was advertised in Bridal Magazine and she was featured in Money Magazine.
Since retiring from the business in 1994, she has devoted her energies toward designing and making beautiful quilts. Her work has won awards across the country and continues to evolve. She actively competes her work at different shows every year.
Sharon is very dyslexic, and has learned how to improve method and decrease the time it takes to do many quilt techniques. This has allowed her to pursue quilting from a fresh perspective and is instrumental in her ability to teach others. She has been actively teaching from coast to coast for the last several years and loves to share her work and ideas.
Sharon teaches hand and machine quilting and both hand and machine appliqué. She also brings a love of beadwork from the bridal industry to some of her work. She is also teaching hand painting. Tsukineko Japanese inks in their advertising are currently displaying her work.
Her newest innovation is called Piecelique, and she is also teaching it along with videos and tapes to help retain the technique. These Tutorials are available from www.jukeboxquilts.com This technique was also filmed for Simply Quilts in Dec. 2003 and will air in April, 2004. The episode is #1004.
Sharon loves to share her work and has inspired many who have been in her classes. The many quilters who she has inspired to finish projects continually demonstrate this.
