Annette and her husband Steve have lived in Hamilton, Missouri four years. She took her first quilting class 45 years ago, learning to piece by hand and make templates from cardboard. Her love of quilting has continued to grow ever since.
While recovering from a bad car accident and confined to a wheelchair, Annette questioned the new career choice she had been about to start. After reading the book, "Do What You Love..." and attending a seminar, she decided to take a different and life-changing direction. She started working in her local quilt shop part-time. Within a few years, she purchased a longarm and built a successful longarm quilting business and was teaching a wide variety of classes.
Annette also enjoys gardening, jewelry making, cross-stitch, embroidery, punch needle and rug hooking. She loves books and listens to two or more audio books a week- while she is sewing or quilting, of course! However, it is her passion for quilting and teaching, sharing her skills and helping other quilters that she truly loves.
Classes will take place in the classroom of the Missouri Quilt Museum. Please enter through the NORTH DOOR located at 325 EAST Aurthur.
