I fell in love with the fabric, patterns, and people of Thread when it opened in 2010. In 2012, I began working at Thread and grew to love it even more. In November 2013, I purchased Thread from Alyson Ray and found the perfect outlet for my personal creativity and my love of the local sewing community. My goals for Thread are to provide the community with a store that features beautiful, high-quality fabrics and notions for apparel, quilting, home decor, and to create a hub of inspiration that will foster friendships among the sewing community.
My love for sewing began when I was in my high school home economics class. That passion grew when Charlee Beth, my daughter, was born I began smocking and heirloom sewing and continued when my son Clark was born. I have been sewing clothing, home décor, and quilts for 25 years. When I am not immersed in a sewing project, I enjoy travel, exercise, and spending time with my husband, Brad, and our children. I am excited to share my passion for sewing and fabric with the customers and friends of Thread.
