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 sew baby and t-shirt quilts. I also teach children’s and adult sewing classes at a local quilt shop. Technical editing services for indie pattern designers is a recent addition to my menu of services.
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.
Random bit of information about me: I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Library Media for K-12. Here’s a link to a K-5 lesson plan I wrote for the Quilt Index that incorporates my love of research with quilts.
