She has been quilting for 8 years and here is her story:
"I needed a hobby when I retired eight years ago, so a friend helped me sew my first quilt top, and I have been hooked ever since. I really enjoy making gifts for family and friends and I spend almost every day in my sewing room. I have made numerous quilts, tote bags, table runners and placemats, jewelry pouches, hanging dish towels, pillow pets, and wall hangings. I recently purchased a sewing machine that embroiders, so this Christmas, everyone received an embroidered hanging towel, whether they want one or not!
I gifted a quilt to Sean, who was a caregiver for my folks at Independence Village. In his spare time and with his own money, Sean made model airplanes for resident Veterans, and my dad was also a recipient of one of Sean’s models. Sean and his Veterans were featured in a PBS special, which resulted in Sean’s hobby becoming a full time job for Independence Village around Michigan and Ohio. Sean is an awesome individual, who really cares about his guys and gals, so I wanted to make a patriotic quilt for Sean, to honor him for all the great work he is doing for our Veterans!"
Thank you for sharing Sandy, and congratulations!!
