Mother, Wife, Veteran, Quilter, Quilt Shop Owner
I have always dreamed of owning a store. While stationed at Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota, I discovered a store dedicated to cross-stitch. I was instantly in love with the idea of spending all day surrounded by art, artists and threads. I dreamed of the fabric and thread I would have, and the classes I would host. When I fell in love with quilting, the dream changed to different fabrics and threads but still buzzed around inside my head and heart waiting.
Never Enough Fabrics and Quilting is that dream come true!
I began sewing around the age of six. I still have the embroidery piece my mother purchased with a couple of box tops and a coupon from a magazine. I was about nine or ten when armed with a small piece of white fabric, I designed and created with scissors, needle and thread, a pair of overalls for each of my dolls. For many years I sewed curtains and clothes and even school uniforms before I began quilting. When I did decide to finally start my first "real" quilt, I knew what colors I wanted; yellow and blue. I knew I needed a "pop" of color. I knew all about different patterns, but couldn't decide on one. Four months later, I had 50 fat quarters and still no pattern. And so my stash was born!
I consider my shop to be an extension of my home, a place where family and friends can gather around a shared love of fabrics and possibilities. A home where dreams come true!
