About me

Location Hillman, Michigan, United States
Introduction My name is Pam. I was the Coordinator for the Quilter's Retreats at Thunder Bay Resort. The Resort is no longer hosting Quilter's Retreats. I am now enjoying my time with my family and my sewing machine. My husband Steve and I were married on September 20, 1975. We have 3 wonderful children, Mike, Greg and Heather, 2 great daughters-in-love, Tasha and Rachel and 7 absolutely perfect grandchildren, Cameryn, London, Allie, Gavin, Grady, Kingsley and Liam. I have been a quilt maker for about 26 years. I learned the basics of quilt making from a group of Church ladies as we made a raffle quilt. That was prior to rotary cutters, really neat rulers, fusible web and all of the other cool gadgets we quilters now use. One of my favorite sayings is “I don’t count a day complete till fabric, thread and needle meet.” I can consider most of my days “complete” although every now and then it just isn’t possible to get some stitching in. Hand quilting and hand piecing are still my preferred methods so I usually have a project or two available to work on.
