Hi there!

I am prior service military and am a retired civil service employee.  I retired, as a civilian Marine Corps employee.

After 30+ years of sporadically (because of that nasty thing called a JOB) making quilts,crocheting afghans, oil paintinging, scrapbooking and whatever else that hit my fancy, I decided to take my favorite hobby to a new level.  Hand quilting really takes too long, so I started using my sewing machine.  Since the throat on a conventional sewing machine is just too small for those big quilts (I like making big quilts), I upgraded to a self-guided longarm quilter.  That was fun (once I figured out the tension), but started to see the many beautiful and fun options that a computer adds to the process.  So off shopping I went.  I went to Quilt Shows and shops galore to test drive different machines and automated software.  At the Quilt Expo last year I met Lori Clayton of Threads Run Thru It, Phenix, VA (http://www.trtiwequilt.com/) who is the Gammill/ Statler dealer for this area.  Needless to say.... I am using the Statler Stitcher running Creative Studio 5.0 and have access to thousands of digital quilt patterns, but I still do some hand-guided work.  

I specialize in functional quilts and work hard to make your quilt special for you and the intended recipient.  I love to personalize quilts and quilting to make gifts special.

If you send me your quilt you'll get the attention and interaction you need and the price can't be beat.  I believe that we shouldn't go broke because we have a hobby.
