I've lived in Houston, 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 - Over the years we've been to quilt shops and shows in Ireland, Scotland, France, Iceland and Japan. We are looking forward to offering additional tours to France, Portugal, Spain, Italy.
Looking forward to being able to participate in as many activities as I can with the Guild.
