She's hooked, line and sinker....and we are so excited!
When did you start quilting?
I started quilting in November when I took the beginner class at Mama's Quilt Shop, at that time I had never sewed and had to borrow a machine from my mother to bring to class, and didn't even know how to thread a bobbin. Oh, what a patient teacher Ms. Annette was!! I now have my own machine and sew every night if I can!! I have always loved quilts and wanted to know how, but never thought it possible for me since I didn't know how to sew and the fact that I am not very crafty or creative. I have never had a hobby prior to quilting.
What do you do when you are not quilting?
I am a registered nurse, I work at Lallie Kemp (which is very convenient to stop by the quilt shop) in outpatient infusion, which means that mostly I administer chemotherapy. I love being a nurse and taking care of patients.
Can you tell us a little about you and your family?
I am married to my husband of almost 30 years we have 2 children and 2 little grandsons. My husband is the pastor at Mt. Nebo Baptist Church. Ministry keeps us very busy, but what a joy it is working for the Lord!! I really enjoy spending time with my family.
So...what new tool or technique would you like to learn next?
That would be hard to say, because I want to learn to do everything!! I hope to soon learn how to do that twister and maybe eventually learn to do some appliqué and whatever else anyone is willing to teach me!! I think I definitely have caught the quilting bug , and I love it!!!
Thank you Stephanie for sharing your beautiful quilt with us and a little bit about you. It is truly a blessing when you visit the shop.
