And Deana's question, "Who got you hooked on quilting?" My mom gets the first nod, for letting me experiment on her Singer Featherweight from as early as I can remember. She turned me loose, and that was the best way I learned. I read her McCall magazines, followed patterns, cut up scraps and sewed doll clothes, doll house accessories, and then my own clothes. At age 16, I ordered a kit from McCall's, an applique pillow pattern in Pennsylvania Dutch Style. This was 1972. The kit contained everything to applique and then quilt a round pillow, make the red piping, put a zipper in the side... I was hooked! My first quilting class was in Berkeley from Roberta Horton in 1979. Lucky me! I still love to take classes, and make it a goal to travel to a big name teacher each year. The last 3 years I have learned from Sue Spargo, Gwen Marston, and Karla Alexander. I wonder who it will be this year?
