Hi, I go by "Joey" its short for Joannie. I’m the type of person that likes to be short, sweet, and to the point. No beating around the bush with me!
- Wife to Jason
- Mother to 4 wonderful and energetic kids ages 17 months-9 years old (2 in Heaven)
- Quilter since February 2003 before I married in June
- Air Force Veteran
- Retired Nurse
There is no one in my family (that I know of) that is a quilter.
How did I get into it? Read ahead to find out more...
I started quilting 4 months before I was to get married in 2003 and I wanted to give my bridal party a quilt. So I made 4 Double Wedding Ring Wallhangings and a Twin Size Monkey Wrench for the Maid of Honor, my sister, in just 4 months. My sister is asking me for another one in the colors of orange and blue, I’m guessing those are her college colors!
There are NO quilters in my family that I know of. I’m the first and hope to be passing the love and joy to my children.
Then in 2013, Mother’s Day, my hubby got me a used Gammill Premier-Plus Longarm Machine. He won Hubby of the Century Award! I’m not kidding. He just made my dream come true! I have been wanting one for years but since they cost the same as a used or new car, I was just going to wait it out. I didn’t have to wait long just 3 short years!
