Welcome!
I love being a quilter and I have the best job there is: teaching people how to quilt. I came to quilting in a round-about way, and never looked back. After 40 years I still find it exciting, exhilarating, and incredibly satisfying. Quilting has given me the opportunity to create, invent, share, and meet wonderful people.

"I am a quilter, so this website was like my birthday and Christmas all wrapped together. I found items I never knew existed. The icing on the cake was Ami Simms' wonderful sense of humor. Great place to shop and a chuckle or two as well. What more could you ask for!"
