I live with my husband of thirty years, my daughter, and an assortment of animals in a rural area of southern Alberta, Canada, in an abandoned church we bought and renovated. I have been stitching since I was old enough to hold the needle my mother put in my hand. About 20 years ago, I joined the Calgary Guild of Needle and Fibre Arts, a chapter of The Embroidery Association of Canada, and I haven't looked back, constantly exploring new stitch techniques and ideas. I have been working primarily on crazy quilts for the past five years and it has become a glorious obsession. I teach crazy quilting and other stitching techniques at a variety of venues.
