Cathy is the face, heart, and talent of Quilted Creations! Her love and passion for your quilt is probably almost as high as yours. She is trained on the APQS "Millie" (including a trip to Salt Lake City for a specialized course to learn extra tricks) to be able to bring your vision to life, create a masterpiece on your quilt, or simply add a design that complements your quilting. She prides herself on precision and perfection both in the design and execution of your quilting needs.
When in high school Cathy had a very wise physics teacher that thought perhaps physics wasn't the endeavour she should be pursuing and that maybe she should take sewing (something she was actually interested in). She is sure he would have no idea of how much that suggestion impacted her life. Her love affair with sewing has lasted throughout the years and has been pursued in many ways including owning a fabric store in the early 90's, teaching many sewing classes, sewing for her own kids, and now coming to reside firmly in her love of quilting.
Quilted Creations is the culmination of many experiences of a lifetime and one strong belief in the need to express creativity!
Quilted Creations has the basic value of believing in the importance of the creative process and in valuing your creativity and investment. Your creativity, time, love, effort and little piece of your soul that goes into every quilt is celebrated by our design. We strive to provide good turnaround time while doing excellent work on your quilt!
Working as an accountant Carl's creative experience is lived out in the model train world (it's frowned upon to be too creative in the accounting world) and although he has taken "Millie Machine" out for a spin or two honestly, he is much more interested in the creativity that makes the machine run and the incredible workings of that machine and its computer program. (Which works well for the rest of us because we know he's keeping those things in top condition!) It makes for a truly great partnership!
Sara Bischoff is our Calgary and area consultant. She's the one who will come to your home (if you live in the Calgary area) to discuss your quilted creation and the work you would like to have done. She is also the one you might see when she delivers that quilt back to you.
Get in touch with her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sara loves quilting! You couldn't keep her away from it even if it meant cutting out that project on the coffee table! (Pictured here at Quilt Canada in Vancouver!)
If creating a commissioned quilt with us, Sara might do some of the cutting or sewing work on it. (Don't worry- we only hire perfectionists!)
Speaking of perfectionists, meet Amanda Hewlett, our girl behind the screen. While Amanda has convinced herself that she might actually finish one of her quilt projects one day, she is much better at completing social media posts. Amanda runs our Facebook, Instagram, and website, so keep an eye out for different ways to see our quilts by following us @quiltedcreationsinc
While not "official" members of the team, the grandkids have all taken a spin on "Millie Machine" and are a great reason to visit Calgary to bring your quilts back to you if you're in the area!
P.S. No children will work on (or crawl on) client quilts. Don't worry- the picture below is my daughter's quilt and her son!
