My name is Lorrie and I love to create, whether it’s sewing, quilting, cooking, or crafting. There is creativity flowing through my family. One of my grandmas taught me to embroider; the other taught me to sew. My mom gave me my first sewing machine and helped me learn to quilt. I think that Singer sewing machine was the best gift!

When I began sewing, it was Halloween costumes for my son.








Now my little scarecrow is 15, so I no longer get to do that.

But, I visited a local quilt shop several years ago with my mom and since then …I don’t think I go one day without thinking “what am I going to work on today?” Should I work on my unfinished appliqué, should I begin cutting out a new quilt? Maybe make a cheesecake or a new leash for Daisy May?

So many possibilities!  So, come join us and hopefully we will inspire you to create something too.


Hi, I’m Paige and memories of my first quilt given to me by my grandma inspires me to design and create handmade items so others can experience the same feeling I’ve had of receiving such a special gift made especially for me!

 The first quilt I sewed was an Ohio Star block paper pieced on my mother’s Singer back in 1995. Her machine had two speeds zero or 150 mph! Many times I had to make sure my fingers weren’t part of the seams! Oh, and I used regular copier paper so you can imagine the fun I had picking all the paper out of the seams. Shortly afterward I invested in a Bernina Virtuosa 150 which is amazingly precise, smooth and reliable!

Then on a very impulsive day almost four years I invested in a Gammill Classic Plus. Since I loved to draw and doodle transitioning from my Bernina to the longarm for machine quilting was amazingly easy. In August 2007 started up a longarm quilting business PaigeAlaine Quilting & Designs. It was very successful but time was becoming a factor especially with a full time job during the week. So, a few months ago I decided  to stop quilting for clients and focus on designing patterns and quilting my own treasures!
