My quilting journey started in about 2005, when I asked my then boyfriend, now husband for a sewing machine for Christmas. I had pretty quilts dancing in my head with absolutely no sewing know how. Soon after I tried and failed to get to know my machine and was madly frustrated. It sat in a closet until 2012.
2012 is when I started my job at JoAnn fabrics and just had to learn how to use the fabrics I was seeing. YouTube to the rescue, and I taught myself everything I know now. I also learned not to buy much fabric from my job. Ha! (Except Cloud 9 and Kona, always buy Kona there don't let anyone tell you it's not the same, it is and use your coupons, people).
Now it's 2016,and I have a better machine, dozens of quilts under my belt, and a long term goal of buying a long arm and turning that into a business. What was so daunting anyway? Threading that first machine, which I can now do with my eyes closed, and quickly to boot!
Have a great month!
