I have been sewing since my legs were long enough to touch the foot pedal on my sewing machine. I came to quilting more recently in 2003, and have enjoyed the journey of discovering exactly what type of quilter I want to be.
My company, LoveBug Studios, originally began as a custom quilt and handbag shop. As I started learning more about quilting, I found more satisfaction in teaching others to quilt using my methods and techniques, especially for fabric die cutting, and my growing line of publications and kits are quite popular among die-cutting enthusiasts.
I have published more than 50 educational videos on quilting and die cutting, which are freely available on YouTube. I'm a recurring guest on Mary Fons’s show Quilty (available on QNNtv.com) and have had my quilts & quilting featured in several publications. I am also a regular columnist for Quilty Magazine.
I created and launched the EDeN™ System (Equivalent Die Notation System) which will enable anyone to convert patterns into die cutting instructions across all major cutting systems. My patterns and publications use the EDeN System for cutting charts to enable anyone - die cutters and rotary cutters alike - to cut the correct shapes for their quilting projects. My book, The Big Little Book of Fabric Die Cutting Tips, is written especially for people interested in die cutting, and offers tips and techniques for using any of the 5 most popular die-cutting systems.
