Hi there! My name is Teresa Kent. I am a librarian, quilter and dog mom who lives in the northwest Atlanta suburbs. During the day, I work at an urban Title I school where I also run a Friday afternoon maker club. After hours, I like to dabble in all the things fabric related – quilting, garment sewing, home dec, hand embroidery and cross-stitch. I also teach children’s and adult sewing classes at a local quilt shop. Technical editing and pattern writing services for designers and shop owners is now available. Do you have an idea for a BOM or Row by Row, but are stuck on how to write it up? Do you need a second set of eyes to look over your pattern? I’ll be happy to help!
A portion of the proceeds generated from my business (more like an obsession, actually) goes to support CAREing Paws, a therapy animal program, of which my dog, Boomer, and I are members and a registered R.E.A.D. team. (R.E.A.D. stands for Reading Education Assistance Dogs.) We currently volunteer at the local library and visit area hospitals, but you may spot us at other CAREing Paws events and quilt shops in the Atlanta area.
I learned to sew as a young girl, but didn’t really start quilting until about ten years ago. I have sewn casual garments, formal wear, kid clothes, bags, kitchen accessories, curtains, table linens, school banners, dance costumes, baby things, repaired outdoor & marine equipment…but quilting remains my favorite type of sewing. In case you were wondering, I do NOT do alterations, but am happy to refer you to someone who does.
