I am an award winning quilter who has been sewing and quilting for over twenty five years. I retired from the U.S. Army in 2006 after fighting in multiple war zones. I am proud to say that Stroke of Luck is a Female and Service Connected Disabled Veteran Owned and Operated Small Business. I decided to open my business because I love sewing, quilting, long-arm quilting, and working with my friends and partners to design and finish beautiful quilts while allowing me to share my talents and raise money for other disabled veterans and pursue my passions while providing patterns, designs, and sewing for U.S. military veterans and civilians alike.
My quilts have been published in multiple magazines, toured around the country, displayed in fabulous locations, while I have lectured and taught along side of them. In 2016 a selection of my quilts will be touring the country with a Sew/Quilt EXPO (more details to come) and my work will also be displayed in an Arts Center and several galleries.
In addition to my quilting, I am a triathlete with multiple metals, a skier, avid cyclist (both a two wheeled bicycle and a trike for days that my legs and balance are not cooperating), kayaker, hiker, and family camper. My doctors would prefer I stick with quilting since it is more gentle on my brain but I always wear my helmet when out on my bike or skiing and it is great for my PTS (Post Traumatic Stress). In the end being physically active is great for my quilting and my military injuries- because it allows me to create without limits while healing me from the inside out.
Come along while we create some of the most exciting work in quilting and material design!
