"I love creating art with fabric and consider myself a non-traditional quilter. Raw edge applique, machine embroidery, my BERNINA's decorative stitches, and a variety of specialty threads are some of my favorite things to incorporate into my art quilts! Working here at Mea, I get to enjoy meeting other passionate sewists and helping them find the perfect new machine to make their sewing experience even more enjoyable."
"I love that my job means I get to work in a lovely place, making lovely things, with lovely people! My favorite part of being a sewist is being able to add color, pattern, and texture to anything and everything, and sharing my enthusiasm with our customers."
"The thing that I love most about sewing is the sense of accomplishment that accompanies a completed project. Most people would not guess that I am an avid fan of historical quilts! My favorite thing about Mea is the atmosphere of camaraderie that comes with working here and seeing the unique creativity that each customer brings in."
"Hailing from California, I traveled frequently courtesy of the US Army before settling here in Kansas. Quilting and teaching have been my passions for the last 10 years. I love learning and sharing new techniques, patterns, and ideas, and hope to meet you in one of our classes!"
"My favorite part of being a sewist is the freedom to create! I can tailor patterns to my desires, and best of all I get to share this hobby with my two daughters. Every day at Mea brings a new challenge, but I love the puzzle of diagnosing and repairing a new machine each day."
"With over 50 years of sewing experience, I've gotten to try just about everything, but my true passion is quilting! After 10 years at it, I still enjoy every aspect of the creative process and sharing my knowledge with fledgling quilters is the ultimate warm and fuzzy. I love that moment when their "light comes on" and they realize their potential!"
