About the Author
Lisa's mother's beautiful crochet and embroidery creations inspired Lisa at age 13 to try her hand at needlepoint, and then crochet. Lisa found enjoyment in creating things with her hands and experienced a satisfying feeling of accomplishment when a project was completed.
As a young woman, Lisa met Sandy Heminger, who was opening a quilt shop in Akron, Ohio. Lisa worked at Sandy's shop cutting fabric, waiting on customers, and making store models--happy to be among fabric and quilts. She took as many classes as possible, trying all the techniques that were offered, and it was there that Lisa learned the art of quilting. After a couple of years, Lisa was given the opportunity to teach a hand-quilting class. Then her love for sampler quilts unfolded, as she was able to help design and draft blocks for the block-of-the-month program.
Other important activities in Lisa's life are raising and training horses, gardening, and stargazing. Next she's planning to start a little chicken farm.
