Diane has been working with fabric since her grandmother taught her how to hand piece her first nine patch block at age 4. A blue-ribbon winning hand quilter, she discovered machine quilting in the late 1990’s had has never looked back. She loves nothing better than sharing her passion for machine quilting with others, especially through her work with local quilting groups and shops leading classes and organizing workshops supporting local charities.
A professional machine quilter since 2007, Diane purchased her first long-arm, a HQ Sixteen with HQ Pro-Stitcher in 2008. She recently upgraded to an HQ24 Fusion with HQ Pro-Stitcher to further expand her creative options. Diane lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, Terry and dachshund, Annie.
