I've lived in Kingwood, TX, USA for about 20 years. Prior to that I lived in New York City and Northern New Jersey. I began quilting about 7 years ago, when my son went to college. Since then I've made quilts for friends and family.
I am second generation American through my mother (Ireland-Rochford / Scotland-Cameron) and my father's heritage is also Irish and Scottish (although I'm 6th or 7th generation). My roots are very strong and I have several Scottish Cameron relatives that I see every few years, whether in Scotland or in the US.
In 2013 after a quilt tour to Ireland, a friend and I decided to start our quilt tour company - Celtic Quilt Tours - In the four years we've offering tours, we've been to quilt shops and shows in Ireland, Scotland, France and Iceland. In 2018 we will be offering tours to Wales/Festival of Quilts and Canada, in addition to Ireland and Scotland.
Looking forward to being able to participate in as many activities as I can with the Guild.
