My mother made all my clothes and I had the best dressed Barbie in Dallas, Texas! Mama was my role model and inspiration. She could do anything she set her mind to. Owning a store like Sew Much Fun! has been a life long dream! I have always been crafty and started college as a Home Economics major, but ended up with a BS in Accounting (working in the tax field I guess you could say I was creative with numbers!) I have 3 grown sons, 8 grandchildren (4 girls, 4 boys) and a very supportive husband.

I have always loved crafts! My mother taught me to sew when I was ten and always encouraged me, even when I cut up her best fabric!! I have a degree in Home Economics from Appalachian. I love to sew and when I was introduced to machine embroidery, it was love at first sight! Working at Sew Much Fun is always a creative adventure for me. I teach various classes including Embroidery Mastery classes for your new BERNINA. I am married and have two grown children and two grandsons. Just another excuse to buy more fabric!! Hope to see you soon at Sew Much Fun!



  I have been sewing about as long as I can remember. One of the first lessons I learned from my mother was not to use her sewing scissors for anything else. We made almost everything I wore until I graduated from college and started teaching. When my students found out that I made some of my clothes, they told me that they “looked real.” I have knitted and cross-stitched from many years, but I have only been quilting for about two years. I consider myself “Queen of the Quilt Tops” as I have yet to finish any of the quilt tops I have sewn. I am envious of all of the beautiful projects that Sew Much Fun! customers start -- and finish.   Maybe one day . . .

I started sewing when I was five years old. I wasn't allowed to use the sewing machine so I had to hand sew my Barbie clothes. My first job was in a large fabric store with the same name as me. I sewed garments for years and made my first quilt after my daughter was born. Twenty years later I'm still making quilt tops. I love the challenge of a new pattern or technique but get bored with the quilt once I know what it will look like finished. I have so many quilt tops. I am called the Queen of Acrylic because of my love of any new ruler or template. I love to teach quilting classes and work hard doing all your cutting and pressing in class so you will really miss me when you go home.

 I am originally from Cary, NC and have lived all over NC, some in SC, VA, and MD.  I grew up with various handmade pieces of clothing from my mom as a kid, so I’m sure she has a lot to do with my creative mind. My mom signed me up for a sewing class one summer at G Street Fabrics in MD when I was eleven.  I wasn’t the happiest about it, but after was so excited that I signed up for every class after that from pattern making to various apparel making classes. I was hooked and got my first Bernina 1001 not long after that. Sewing has continued to be in my life through working and growing up in a bridal and formal wear shop, taking high school fashion design classes, sewing costumes for family and friends, and most recently quilting with my mom and sewing various items for charity through a sewing ministry at church.  One thing not everyone knows about me is that I was a professional photographer for many years taking pictures at weddings, special events and even running multiples portrait studios.  

 My husband Luke and I have two fur babies named Blue and Beulah.

My love for all things handmade began when I was in third grade. That’s also when I attempted to learn how to sew. I graduated with a BA in Art from the University of Nevada in Reno in the early 70s. I love anything colorful and/or textiles. I tried decorative painting for a few years including painting on textiles. I started quilting in my early twenties using scissors and templates. That didn’t last long. I have needlepointed, cross stitched and made my clothes. But while living in Missouri two wonderful things happened that changed my approach to quilting. A wonderful friend, Mary Kay, and the rotary cutter. She taught me many things about quilting and I haven’t stopped since.

 I am a retired Federal Employee, my quilting and crafts kept me sane. But when I retired we moved to Hendersonville, NC and I had an opportunity to work at a quilt shop. There I was introduced to Bernina and the workings of a quilt shop and making quilts. Unfortunately it closed. But hearing about the impending birth of a grandchild we moved to Gastonia to be closer to family. I have a husband who is very supportive, two grown children and two grandchildren. I am very blessed.

 I love working with quilters and fabric and colors.

I started sewing in middle school through home economics classes. I dabbled with sewing through adulthood but raising a family was my top priority. It didn’t leave much room to sew. When my youngest daughter went off to college I decided I needed a hobby and found how to make a quilt on the internet. I made my first quilt this way and my youngest still uses it. Halfway through making that first quilt I decided I need a better sewing machine. My oldest daughter worked with someone that had a Bernina. My daughter and I found Sew Much Fun and I bought my first Bernina that day. That was 12 years ago and one of the best investments I ever made. I have learned so much not only quilting but have added embroidery to my sewing skills. I am very excited about working at Sew Much Fun. There is so much to learn and many new friends to make. I have 3 daughters, 1 granddaughter and a very support husband that lets me live my dream every day.

I was born into a large Minnesota family of sewists.  My first quilting experience has been told to me hundreds of times - singing commercial jingles under Grandma's frame at age 3 as she and my great aunts stitched.  The love of fibers is in my DNA!

I started out using Mom's leftover fabrics, embroidery floss, and a needle or two by the time I was 6.  My Barbie dolls even had handmade shoes!  I spent many wonderful hours on crochet, felt applique, and crewel work.  I was in middle school before I began using a machine on a regular basis.  Mom taught me the basics as she created her own pieces.

As a young family, my husband and I relocated to the south.  For many years, there was little time to sew "for fun".  Making my nursing uniforms and a few dresses for our daughters filled my sewing hours.  I began making very simple quilts about 10 years ago.

Fast forward to the present.  I have more time to sew the things that make me smile.  I love, love, love sewing on my machine - a BERNINA 790Plus.  Quilts and bags are my favorites, with loads of color.  Each day is a new day to explore what can be done with fabric, thread, and imagination.  I still have many goals to reach when it comes to sewing, including sharing the joy of creating with our granddaughter!  I am sew happy to be able to share the joy of creating at Sew Much Fun!

My mom and dad loved antiques and took our family to flea markets and shops regularly. I was always drawn to the quilts. I started stitching small quilts for my baby dolls. After taking home economics and becoming the proud owner of a Singer featherweight, I began to learn patchwork and hand quilting. My mom and I made a red, white, and blue quilt for the bicentennial, which I still have. When I moved to Connecticut as a newlywed, I joined a small quilt group, and began attending the Vermont Quilt Festival, where I purchased my first Bernina. I have continued to quilt through the years as Randy and I raised our children in the New England area, and later in Charleston. I have been a teacher, and later a principal. We retired to Mt. Holly, and I joined Sew Much Fun after taking classes here.
