As a third-generation quilter, I have an unwavering appreciation for the art of sewing and telling stories with fabric. My grandmother sewed over 70 quilts to donate to the Fort Meade Veterans Hospital Hospice wing. My mother has sewn over 100 quilts for cancer patients. Both play an influential role in my love of quilting and desire to help others learn the craft as well. 
     I have begun the restoration of a building in Newell, SD to house the Quilt Bank. I'm more crafty than clever, so I chose the name since the building actually operated as a bank when it was built in the 1920's. When complete, I plan to offer a fabric inventory that includes quilt kits and a room to allow customers to use the space to sew in a communal fashion. I will also host quilting retreats, children's classes, and other artisans who want to teach their craft.
     Time and time again, I've had people tell me the thing they do not understand about quilting is why someone would cut up perfectly good fabric only to sew it back together. What they haven't yet discovered is the social connections and storytelling that quilting offers. For hundreds of years people have gathered to quilt and use it as a way to recognize life's landmarks, whether it's a birth, graduation, or wedding. My hope is to teach others the value of this art.

May we sew our pieces together.
