About me

A love of beautiful clothing and a desire to create unique, one-of-a-kind designs led to a lifelong love affair with fashion, fabric and fiber arts.  A sense of whimsical imagination is found in many of my creations. 

I learned to sew from my mom who had endless patience and ripped out my sewing mistakes until I eventually developed a passion for sewing at which point mom’s ripping service ended.  Ten years of 4-H sewing followed by a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska with an emphasis in Textiles, Clothing & Design provided a strong foundation in the area of textile arts. 


My professional background includes managing clothing stores, owning my own fashion accessories business known as In Perfect Harmony, and working as an enrichment lecturer aboard cruise ships speaking on the art of being a well-dressed woman.  My current position as a National Educator representing Sulky of America is the fulfillment of a dream which offers me the extraordinary opportunity to inspire students with a myriad of sewing techniques, surface design and embellishment ideas.  I travel extensively, teaching at the Original Sewing & Quilting Expos as well as presenting Sew Exciting seminars

 in quilting and fabric stores across the country where my high energy presentations, incredible array of inspiring samples and infectious enthusiasm are met with rave reviews.  My quilted Fiber Bubbles jacket is featured in Sulky’s book, Quick & Easy Weekend Quilting with Sulky”.   I am a designer in the 2008 Bernina Fashion Show, Rendezvous.


I live in Lincoln, Nebraska with my husband, Larry.  We enjoy entertaining, decorating our home and traveling to visit our grown children.  I am the proud mother of three incredible children whom I admire and adore.  Tom sells real estate in Lincoln, Ginger is a designer for Microsoft in Seattle, WA and Dawn is a professional actress and plays the role of a very tall bridesmaid  in Tony & Tina’s Wedding in New York City.
