I began my business in 2012, after retiring from my career of 36 years as a Speech pathologist. I have sewn all of my life- as my grandmother taught me at around 4 to stitch. She was from Vienna and came to this country via Ellis Island, working in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. I began quilting around 1980 and never stopped. I sold many quilts, bags and embroidered items until 3 years ago- when I began to sell fabric, thread and notions. FreeSpirit has guided and supported me on this journey.
The art of stitching and creating quilts, enables quilters to share inspiration and beauty, to express ideas and enhance the important moments of our lives. I carry many contemporary/ modern fabrics & patterns in my shop. Often it is difficult for quilters to find those cutting edge patterns and fabrics. I’m happy to bring them to your doorstep, as an online retailer. I will assist you in finding all the fabrics and threads that you need in person, by phone, via email, skype, or FaceTime. I love mixing and matching fabrics, from my hundreds of bolts, to create exactly what your imagination desires. It might be a pattern you have seen or bought …or perhaps you need more fabric for a current project, and a second pair of eyes will make the difference.
I vend and teach at local quilt shows and guilds. I absolutely love talking with other quilters and teaching them easier techniques and tricks, to enhance their art of stitching.
