Welcome new Friends!
Every piece of fabric that passes through your hands is just that - a piece of fabric -
until you create from it the art only your unique touch can provide.
I'd like to inspire and encourage you to venture into new creative territory - places you've admired in others' work from a distance but perhaps never thought possible for yourself. What you need is already within you. Join me, and I will help you take those first steps!
Meet the Artist
Hello, I'm Valerie!
I learned to sew in 7th grade Home Economics class and never stopped. After years of sewing clothes and formal dresses for my three daughters I took my first quilting class. Right from the start I wanted to tweak patterns to make them my own. That was 20 years ago, and my passion for quilting has grown along with my stash. I still can't claim a favorite quilting style - I prefer to follow where creativity leads - and almost every quilt I create is my own design.
When BlocLoc rulers entered the scene I was an instant fan of the time I saved and the accuracy of my piecing. In 2013 I was asked to attend the BlocLoc certification classes and became an independent contractor. Now I get to travel the world demonstrating their rulers while making new friends.
This journey has inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and it has given me a new confidence to share with others the gratification that comes from creating your own designs.
