Years of Experience

Glenda grew up watching her mother do machine quilting. In 1972, Glenda used some Friendship blocks created by her grandmother to do her first quilt. It was because of the ladies in her family that Glenda developed a deep love of sewing. In 1988 she opened a shop of her own, starting with upholstery, then  carpet binding, draperies, alterations, and various other sewing. Glenda transitioned into a quilt shop 10 years ago.
