I grew up next door to my wonderful grandmother, Louise (Hutlet) Marginet (1903-2001), near Bruxelles, Manitoba and I credit her for a great start to my creative life. I have lived in Manitoba all my life, in several areas of the province. I currently live in Beausejour with my husband. We have one daughter and three beautiful grandchildren.
Although I had made a couple of quilts prior, I caught the quilting bug in 2001 when I took a Log Cabin class to get rid of some fabric I had laying around. I have way more fabric laying around now than I did back then.
I belong to two quilt guilds: Manitoba Prairie Quilters and Winnipeg Modern Quilt Guild. I also head a quilt group, Common Threads in the town where I live. They are all so different but equally enjoyable.
I am the creator and webmaster of Quilt Manitoba, a website that lists quilt resources, links, and activities for quilters living in, or visiting Manitoba.
I love to teach, and I especially love to teach quilting. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and inspiring others. In every class I teach, I learn something and I am inspired. I am a DIY quilter from beginning to end and I encourage others to do the same. I believe there is no right or wrong way, there are different ways. Each person needs to find what works best for them. Take what I, or another instructor teaches and mold it to work for you.
I have written two books on walking foot quilting as well as several patterns. Find out more by visiting MY BOOKS and MY PATTERNS.
