Meet Our Team

Terry S.

I have been sewing since I was ten years old. Along the way I have sewn my own clothes, cross stitched, done English smocking, macrame, beading, knitting, etc. You name it: if it is a craft I have tried it! I dove into quilting when my two boys informed me they would no longer wear smocked outfits. In my former existence I was a critical care nurse and had a longarm business on the side. In 2005 the opportunity presented itself for me to open a quilt shop and become my own boss. Over sixteen years later we are still going strong! I enjoy working with our customers and cherish my employees.

Deb D.

I became a quilter 35 years ago, while expecting my first child. I design my own quilts and enjoy using innovative techniques for piecing and quilting. Some of those techniques are the subjects of classes I teach here at Lone Star Quiltworks.

I serve as the machine tech for Lone Star Quiltworks. I am trained in the repair and maintence of Baby Lock, Handi Quilter and Pfaff sewing, quilting and embroidery machines.

Maegan B.

I have been sewing since 2000 when my mom first introduced me to this creative hobby. Since then I have enjoyed piecing, quilting, and hand embroidery. I am the quilt shop's in-house longarm quilter!

Glenna C.

I love fabric! Finding the perfect fabric is fun! I have been sewing for about 45 years. I started as soon as I could push the pedal on a treadle machine.

Linda J.

I have been sewing since the 1970's. However I didn't catch the quilting fever until I started working at Lone Star Quiltworks. I love working around the fabric and I love the customers and my fellow employees!

Gail H.

My mother taught me to sew when I was 9 years old. I grew up making clothes for myself, then my kids. I've done all sorts of crafts throughout the years, including crewel embroidery, counted cross stitch, scrap booking, and finally quilting. I taught myself the basics of quilt-making in the early 1990's, and am completely addicted to it now!

Cindy R.

I had always wanted to learn how to sew and quilt, and it wasn't until 2006 that my best friend said there was a quilt group forming to work on a block of the month. She encouraged me to go. At the time I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I had no clue what a BOM, rotary cutter, paper piecing, etc. were all about! These ladies were so patient, loving and kind. I was hooked! To this day, I call these ladies my best friends, my "sew sisters."

Lori P.

I started making doll clothes by hand when I was 8 or 9 years old. Finally, when I was 10, my mother taught me to sew on her Singer Featherweight. I made my first quilts in Jr. High from what ever scraps she would give me. My sisters were the recipients of those “lovely” quilts. Somehow my brother ended up with a crocheted afghan. Through the years I have sewn clothes, quilts, and all sorts of crafts. Some of my favorite memories of sewing are all the Halloween costumes that I made for my 6 children. I enjoy quilting, machine embroidery, crafting, and cross stitch. I look forward to all the things that I will learn from my co-workers and new friends at the store.

Barbara B.

I have been sewing since I was about 12. No one in my family sewed so I basically taught myself how to do it. My first project was a dress - I can't believe I actually wore it! I love to all kinds of fiber arts where I can incorporate my love of color. My love of color and fabrics eventually convinced me to return to school where I earned a MA in Theater specializing in Costume Design and Construction.

Donnice W.

I made my first quilt back in 1979. No one else I knew quilted, so armed with a book of patterns, I taught myself. No one told me not to start with y-seams, but hand piecing did make that task easier. I like piecing complex patterns with tiny pieces. I also enjoy paper piecing and am playing around with English paper piecing.

Sandy L.

I really started sewing the summer before 8th grade home economics. I bugged my mother to teach me to sew a skirt and was quickly introduced to "Jack the Ripper." That did not deter me from pursuing the challenges of tailoring, upholstering furniture, making equine paraphernalia, sewing numerous Halloween costumes, etc. I made my first quilt, a sample, in 1982. Since then, I have enjoyed exploring the elements of design, color, and new techniques. I truly enjoy the rich creative environment at LSQW, learning from my LSQW colleagues, and then comradely shared with our many customers.


I grew up in a crafty family. When I was about 5 years old, my great grandma taught me simple hand embroidery. In home economics class I learned to sew simple clothing. I can remember my mom helping me sew A-line skirts for school on her old Singer. From there I picked up needlepoint and cross stitch. About 15 years ago I worked with some avid quilters and "caught" the bug. I love piecing and the challenge of machine quilting on my domestic and embroidery machines.

Kimberly M.

I started sewing in 5th grade when my mom taught me to sew clothes for a 4-H project. I began quilting as a newlywed almost 20 years ago so that I would have a hobby when my husband was deployed. I don’t have as much time to sew now as I would like with three kids at home, but I now get to teach my kids how to sew and quilt!
