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. Mom taught me to sew when I was a kid, but I didn’t really start sewing until I became a school librarian. The Home Ec teacher needed help with costumes for the spring drama production. When she learned I could operate a sewing machine you can probably guess what happened… Well, how could I refuse when she offered the use of a Bernina sewing machine?
Today, 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 ten years. Sadly, Boomer passed away due to complications from idiopathic IMT. His legacy continues with Sadie, the free spirited labradoodle who joined our pack in early 2020. I’m pleased to report that big girl and I passed our therapy dog certification in November, 2020.
