Ann Bertorelli began making quilts soon after the birth of her third grandchild in 2006. Once started it became a passion. However she has been a ‘maker’ her entire life, inspired by her mother who expressed her creativity through knitting, needlepoint, crochet, sewing and painting. “In my household everyone was a maker in different mediums--it was just something that we all did.” Before she took up quilting she made clothing as well as her own ballroom dance costumes for competition.
Ann has a background in teaching from being a high school teacher for 11 years, a corporate trainer, as well as an executive coach.
She likes making modern quilts (which she always labels), and is a long arm quilter.
