I have been sewing professionally for over 25 years. A few years ago, I was introduced to the World of Quilting. This opened up another door for my creativity. I have since bought an APQS Millennium long arm quilting machine and have added quilt making and quilting services to my professional sewing business. I also have an intelliquilter (IQ) and can create incredible quilts.
I provide edge-to-edge free motion quilting as well as custom designs and pantograph quilting. I also provide batting and machine binding services. Please see below for pricing information and details. A 50% deposit is required on all orders. Contact me to discuss your quilting needs.

How to Prepare Your Quilt
Quilt top and backing MUST be squared!
*All seams must be pressed
*Please mark top of quilt if there is a direction to quilt
*Backing must be 8″ wider and 10″ longer than quilt top
*Batting must be 8″ wider and 8″ longer than quilt top
*Please remove all selvages from backing and press open seams
*If your border is pieced, please stay-stitch 1/4″ around quilt top
*You should trim away all loose thread
*Batting should be of good quality, no bargain brands please.
*If your quilt top is not straight or flat, no amount of quilting will
*Remember, when we square & trim after quilting, you may lose a little off your border
*Extra charge may be added for quilts that are not properly prepared
You may supply your own batting, no bargain brands please. I can also provide you with batting. I carry Quilter’s Dream Cotton, Quilter’s Dream Poly Blend, Quilter’s Dream Green, Quilter’s Dream Puff, Warm and Natural 100% Cotton and Quilter’s Dream Midnight Black and 100% wool. I also stock 200 thread count natural or bleached Muslin that is 118” wide for your backing. Prices are very comparable to market.
Hate to finish your quilts with the binding? I can machine-sew your binding on and finish your quilt. I have mastered this step and can attach and finish the quilt. I use invisible thread and a blind stitch so you can’t see the seam. Beautiful and precisely done! Very strong and durable. I do not do hand stitch binding. Ask to see samples.
- Price: make binding $.05 per linear inch
- Price: attach and finish binding $.10 per linear inch
Preserve your precious T-shirts in a beautiful memory quilt that you can keep forever! I will stabilize your shirts and place them in a quilt. You pick the colors.

Approximately $15.00- $20.00 per shirt.

Island living has inspired me to design and sew clothing in beautiful hawaiian print fabric that is available only in Hawaii. I currently do custom sewing and design pieces for weddings, baby parties, hula halaus, proms, uniforms, special orders etc. I love to add bias trimming, piping and ruffles to my pieces for that extra special finished look. I strive for quality sewing at its best!
