About usHi there! Welcome and thanks so much for visiting us at Willow Creek Quilts!
I am so excited that I get to live my dream, daily. Owning a store has been a life long desire and when I pair this with my love for quilting and my need to help people, I am truly living the dream. When I told my Dad we were going to open a quilt store he said that he was not surprised, after all “how many other 9 year olds ask for a cash register for their birthday”.
My mother has been quilting for quite some time now. I loved going with her to quilt stores, picking out fabric, checking out all the notions (I’m the gadget queen) and seeing all of these beautiful projects being created. I had quite the large stash before sewing my first seam. My mother taught me how to quilt and I made my first project (log cabin quilt) as a gift for my husband to celebrate our anniversary and the purchase of our little farm (farmers would classify it as an acreage) near Claresholm, Alberta. From then on I was hooked. I have always wished that I was an artist, but I just couldn’t seem to get my creativity expressed in a way that looked like it did in my imagination. Since I started quilting I have felt that I am truly an artist. I love to share this artistry with friends and loved ones.
A little about my life outside of quilting. I have the most amazing husband, Doug (who is also a co-owner with Nancy and Mike). We have been married for 31 wonderful years. We have been blessed with 4 awesome children (I truly couldn’t have asked for better kids). Our eldest and her husband have blessed us with 2 beautiful grandchildren (they keep saying that they did not have the children for us, but we like to think they did).
I look forward to meeting you and seeing your great projects. We truly do love to see the creativity in each and every one of you.
