Nancy loves all things sewing. She describes herself as a “binge” sewer. One month she’ll be embroidering like crazy, then making purses, then quilting and the list goes on. Nancy and her husband Paul were quilt shop owners for twenty years in Lake Placid, FL. They now reside in North Carolina where Nancy is a free lance designer. Avlyn launched a line of purse kits Nancy designed. There are countless magazine articles, fifteen embroidery design collections, several books, a lot of quilting, accessory patterns and multi-author book contributions to her credit. She has taught at the International Quilt Market, Husqvarna Viking International Convention, Quick, Quicker, Quickest with Sue Hausmann and local quilt guilds.
