Sewing has always been a part of my life. One of my earliest memories is when my sister and I received matching quilts from our Grandmother.

Those beautiful quilts are still much loved and used. 

Before taking my first quilting class in 1980, I tried to make quilts on my own with varying levels of success.  Once my skills developed to match my imagination there was no stopping me.  I have lost count of the number I have made.

The discovery of longarm quilting in 2002 was another life change.  I quickly purchased my first longarm and quit my day job. 

In the last 14 years, I have quilted thousands of quilts for customers and myself.  Always looking for the next step, I opened my beautiful shop in Carleton Place in 2012. 


Come and visit the Pickledish Quilt Shop, it is packed with beautiful inspiring samples, fabrics and lots of encouragement.
