I'm originally from Macon County, and have lived in the beautiful mountains all my life! I just finished my MAEd, May 2013, from Western Carolina University! I work full time at Franklin High School as a Social Studies teacher and love every minute of it! I recently started working at A Stitch in Time as their technology guru working on the website!
I first started sewing in middle school, on my mother’s old machine (she never used it!). I took lessons from Maxine’s mother, she was wonderful, but the dress I made was hideous!
Oh that dress! I then took a beginner quilt class five years ago, here at the shop. After that, I was "hooked". I began my master’s degree four years ago; therefore, I didn’t get to do many projects. However, my love of sewing has returned and I'm catching up and my machine is running!
I'm so blessed to be a part of the Stitch in Time family!
