How did I get started making and selling rag quilts ~~
I’ve wanted to be like my mom and grandma, the two most creative women I’ve known, for as long as I can remember. My mom was always sewing clothes for me and my siblings. We never had a holiday without matching outfits when I was little. 🙂 My grandma was a professional seamstress. For as far back as I can remember, she was sewing. Doing alterations in her home, people going in and out with clothes for her to tailor. She even made the bridesmaid dresses for my wedding.
I played around with sewing when I was young and made a few maternity outfits when I was pregnant and little dresses for my girls. But, it wasn’t until about 10 years ago when I saw a segment on TV about rag quilting that I knew I needed to learn that. I made purse after purse until I felt confident enough to sell them. Then, I started making rag quilts. Found Etsy and it’s been fun ever since. I’m living my dream and I think my mom and grandma would be very happy.
