Owner, Jen Swallow, started quilting while on a military posting to Kansas in 2010.  In 2013, before being posted back to Canada, Jen's husband drove a round trip of over 2800 kilometers to purchase her first longarm for her.  Happy Wife, I guess so!  Jen loves to help her customers find that perfect fabric and enjoys the chance to teach and sew with her quiltie friends.  And when she is not working, you can find her driving her 3 teenagers all over the countryside or camping with friends and family.
