One-Line Bio

I own a fabulous quilt store, Strawberry Patches, in Bakersfield, Ca where I am surrounded daily by wonderful customers and tons of creativity.


I love fabric and anything to embellish it with. I've been sewing since the seventh grade (a VERY long time) and love to share my passion of color and sewing with my customers. I started and have owned Strawberry Patches since 1985 where my staff and I aspire to inspire women of all ages to sew. We have developed a line of patterns for sewing simple baby blankets and bibs that can be completed in just a few hours.


My number one destination on any given weekend is our Ventura, Ca dock side home where we enjoy entertaining friends and family or just hanging out with a sewing project.
