Welcome to Stitches Quilt and Craft!
My name is Adrienne and I am the owner/operator of Stitches Quilt and Craft. I have been sewing since I was about 10 years old. I can remember learning how to use a sewing machine by drawing lines on a piece of paper, removing the thread out of the machine and having to "trace" all the lines. I ended up with a piece of paper with a million little holes! It was my test from my mom to make sure I could sew in the straight line and turn corners. I'm happy to report, I passed!
My senior year in high school we had to do a senior project to graduate. It's a year long project where I was required to make or learn a new skill then present it to a panel of teachers. I chose to learn how to hand quilt and made a four block log cabin all by hand. I also researched the block and created a presentation on it all. I believe that is where my love of quilting started, but I also learned I'm not a fan of handwork.
I have been wanting to own my own quilt store for many years, but the timing was always off, until now. Michele Beaugrad did a beautiful job in setting up and getting Stitches started and I am excited to see where I can take it. I know many of us do other crafts, not just quilting, so that is where we come in! I truly enjoy seeing creativity, no matter what the project is.
My most favorite thing is to pick out fabric. I took a color theory class in college and the knowledge I walked away with is invaluable. Playing with color is a great joy for me. Which probably explains why I have so many projects picked out and not so many done!
I look forward to seeing you in Stitches and helping you in every way I can!
