My Quilting Journey
As a 7th generation quilter, I have been quilting all my life. I was taught by the best, my grandmother, mother, and aunt.

After teaching for 20+ years and quilting only on the side, I decided to pursue my passion full time. I began Sheri's Quilts in 2003 with only longarm quilting services, working with clients locally and nationwide. Now, I am shifting my focus to education, enthusiastically turning my business towards digital products and online classes.

I hope to create a quilting community that connects, supports and empowers women of all ages. Anything is possible when we come together. We simply have to start and take it one quilt square at a time.
Many of my clients’ quilts have won awards at local and national quilt shows, including multiple Best of Show wins.

Kind Words
From Susan
“Sheri is an amazing, creative and artistic longarm quilter. She has turned multiple of my quilt tops into award winning quilts - including a Best of Show at my Quilt Guild. Each one is different, her quilting matching the theme of the quilt. I highly, highly recommend her - a 20 on a scale of 1 to 10!”
