About the Artist

Peggy has fond memories of her mother embroidering linens and sewing her school dresses.  Her father was in the Air Force so she spent part of her childhood in South Carolina in the 1950’s and remembers trips to fabric shops with her mother.
She bought her first sewing machine shortly after marrying, and made a few garments- even her daughter’s wedding dress. She then found a creative outlet in fabric crafting using her sewing skills. In fact Peggy and her mother were co – owners of a handcrafted gifts shop for about  ten years.
Now she enjoys time with her husband and family, (especially her three grandchildren) and making art quilts
