About Us

Our Story

I began sewing at the age of 10 and made my first quilt when I was 20.  I have studied many 100's of hours on different sewing and quilting techniques with various international artist to hone my skills.  I love fiber and textiles and creating within that median,  I love to make things that bring joy to others.

I now have added embroidery and vinyl creations to my playground and enjoy creating crafty projects within these mediums.

Quilting Made Simple


My passion is Quilting.  I love helping others create a piece of art to share with family and friends.  My newest adventure is Quilting Made Simple.   Utilizing an online platform, I have spent hours, days, and months creating a series of classes and retreats to surprise and delight all Quilters.  I invite you to join me for this adventure.  In late June or early July look for the opening of my Quilting Retreat Center in Amarillo.    Check it out at quiltingmadesimple.com.  I look forward to playing with you.  



Part of my desire to create includes longarm quilting.  I love to draw and paint with thread and needle.  While I did not make this lovely quilt, I did quilt it and won 2nd Place overall in quilting at the MVQG  Great River Quilt Show in Indiana in 2016. 

 Let me take your top and add the quilting for you.
