A sewer and a knitter since she was eight years old, Eileen Wright has always worked creatively with needles and threads of some kind, working her way through most needlecraft hobbies over the years. She feels indebted to her maternal grandmother, Cynthia Rassmussen, for passing on her talents and love of being creative.
Vancouver Island in Canada has been Eileen's spiritual home since her very first visit, and she feels fortunate to have been able to live there for almost 20 years. She fills her days with designing and creating quilts.
Eileen shares her condo with three Pfaff sewing machines, a huge fabric stash, and some green growing plants--all of which provide her with all the serenity she craves. Huge skylights allow the sun to shine on her workspace, and an ever-changing view of the ocean and distant mountains often inspires various quilting projects.
