Texture. Technology. Textiles. Teacher.  These are the things that identify the many aspects of my sewing career.

I’m a full time quilter and fiber artist who loves heirloom sewing techniques combined with high tech components that light up your artwork. I love to do fabric manipulations to raise the surface of my quilts and also make cosplay costumes with foam armor pieces. My work is often small, like 6 inches high! I love vintage linens and the modern quilt movement. Basically, I’m not your grandmother’s quilter.
 
I’m on a mission to be unique and weird in the quilting world. I used to groan at the headline “Not your grandmother’s quilts”. But you know what? That’s what we do! We make stuff our grandmothers could not make! And I’m ok with that. And you should be too.
 
I teach and lecture around the country, and I get RAVE reviews from people who attend my talks and classes. 
 
I’ve been on many episodes of Quilting Arts TV and It’s Sew Easy TV, and countless magazines and newspapers. I have a fun line of products from heirloom sewing tools to sewing skull shirts to show off your rock n roll quilter style. 
 

I am influenced by my other hobbies and interests, including comics books, science fiction, Japanese manga, anime and culture, and pop culture.

 

You can buy my heirloom tools, DVD, and e-textile supplies in my Shop .
