Hi! I’m Joanna!
I’m a wife and a mom of the cutest 3 year old little girl (I might be a little biased). I love being out in the country and grew up on a small farm. I started out as an agriculture science teacher and started quilting after my mom gave me a sewing machine for a wedding gift. My principal’s secretary gave me a beginner quilting book and some sweet words of encouragement to start my quilting journey. Both of my grandmothers were skilled seamstresses, but I didn’t find my love for sewing until they were both gone. I wish I had those precious moments with them to sew together, but I hope I can share sewing and quilting with my daughter and leave her with that legacy one day.
I love just about every aspect of quilting–the planing, fabric selection, piecing, and quilting. I’ve always had a love for making things, but quilting 100% has my heart. I unboxed my first sewing machine after it had been in the closet for about 3 years and decided I needed to figure out the whole sewing thing. I love every minute of the journey and hope I can share my sewing adventures with you and we can discover new things together!
