Born and raised in Saskatchewan, I’ve always had an appreciation for hard work and all things homemade. From the small age of 4 I started “helping” my grandma make buns and was cooking on my own by 8. At 9 years old I developed a love for cross stitch, and in my early teens I was busy creating scrap books. I always wanted to learn to sew, especially to quilt. When I was pregnant with my first child I knew my baby HAD to have a homemade ‘blanky’. I called my Aunty and asked if she would teach me. By the end of our quilt day she said to me, “Darc, I could see you doing this.” Since that January 2005 day I have sewn over 100 quilts, taught a dozen friends and family members, learned many techniques and started to longarm. Quilting is a part of me. I love all the incredible things it has brought to my life: the support it brings a fundraiser, the joy of my children building quilt forts, the security a ‘blanky’ can be for a child, the smile when someone has opened their quilt gift, all the memories to make them, and so much more!
I have lived all over Canada and traveled throughout the planet, experiencing different cultures and lifestyles, finding one thing consistent every place I went… I LOVE Beautiful things! Sometimes it was scenery, different artwork, use of colours and textures, and always food.
I appreciate the amazing skill that people have shown in capturing and creating beauty, I have dabbled in almost every craft on the planet found the passion shared by people teaching their skills, passing on knowledge from generation to generation, from culture to culture. I think that being creative is a gift, spreading knowledge is a choice, and I am truly grateful that I have surrounded myself with amazing talent. With Tilted Quilt I have the opportunity to meet new people, see beautiful works of art from the idea stage to the completion and the transformation is breathtaking.
I am unable to actually complete any of the projects I have started, I get terribly excited about the next one to finish the first, so my UFO pile is bigger than I am, luckily I have lots of room!
I look forward to meeting and sharing similar experiences with all of you!
