Hi there! My name is Teresa Kent. I am a librarian, quilter and dog mom who lives in the northwest Atlanta suburbs. I like to dabble in all the things fabric related – quilting, garment sewing, home dec, hand embroidery and cross-stitch. I run a maker club for kids at the day job and also teach children/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 goes to support CAREing Paws, a therapy animal program, of which my dog, Boomer, and I were members and a registered R.E.A.D. team (R.E.A.D. stands for Reading Education Assistance Dogs) for nearly nine years. Sadly, Boomer passed away in March 2020 due complications from idiopathic IMT. Sadie, the labradoodle who joined our pack in January 2020, has begun the journey toward *hopefully* becoming my next pet therapy partner. I affectionately refer to her as “my little pony” because she’s a B-I-G girl.
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.
