Sally's sewing journey began at age 10. With her mother as her teacher, Sally took on the challenge of an un-pressed pleated skirt for her first project. As a young wife, she taught herself tailoring by following the most complicated Vogue patterns.
Sally's first quilts were made for her young sons, following her grandmother's example of using coloring book illustrations for applique motifs. Since moving to Garden Spot Village, Sally has enjoyed the opportunity to continue learning new techniques from other experienced quilters.
For twenty-three years Sally served as a missionary in the Philippines with her family. Her professional training in Christian education prepared her to teach all ages. Today her life is balanced by Bible study and sewing, teaching adults and teaching children. She writes patterns and creates sewing projects using the label Sally’s Stitches.
Sally and her husband enjoy ministry, world travel and keeping physically fit. They have three sons and four grandchildren.
