Marcia Nissley

Sewing Class Coordinator


Marcia began sewing as a young girl, learning under her mother’s supervision. She continues to design and sew quilts and other items as a creative outlet.

Marcia finds inspiration from many sources. “Colors and shapes in nature, dear memories or new experiences, the shared work of other quilters and sewers, and of course, the arrival of new fabric in the Store, all have the potential to spark an idea for a new project,” says Marcia.

Having worked at the Store off and on since 1997, Marcia’s responsibilities include quilt book, pattern, kit, and notion buying in addition to her role as Sewing Class Coordinator. She enjoys working with the newest products available, as well as connecting with the Store’s customers. “I love the way quilting and sewing bring people together. New babies, weddings, charity work, or honoring the memory of a loved one inspire so many projects, and it is truly an honor when customers and students share their stories with me.”

Marcia also enjoys spending time with her family and friends and cooking good food. She especially loves opening her home to gather people around her table.
