Lorena's grandmother taught her to sew when she was 12 and stayed with her for the summer. She sewed almost all of her own clothes in junior high and high school. Then of course, as life got busier, she sewed less but in the early 2000s she purchased a sewing machine. She discovered quilting through one of the Quilt in a Day books. She started in late November and finished two double bed quilts for Christmas. They certainly weren?t perfect but she is proud to say they are still in service!
Since then, she has worked in a quilt store sewing many store samples and teaching quilting classes. Working for The Sewing Works has led her into teaching new owner classes and Westalee Ruler work. She has taught the Quilt As You Go class several times and loves the ?Aha!? moment when quilters realize they can quilt their own tops and not have to hand it off to someone else to get great results.
