Meet the Quilter


My name is Susan Slattery and I live in Jarrettsville, Maryland with my husband of over 30 years. I have been a seamstress, making garments and accessories since the age of eight. I made my first quilt, a simple king sized hand tied, more than 25 years ago. I made a few small quilts through the early years. While I have enjoyed making clothing items and home decor my entire life, my quilting hobby really jumped into high gear around 2008. Since then I just haven't been able to stop! No one told me how addictive quilting can be, or how much fun. :) I belong to Quilting On The Line Quilt Guild which meets in Norrisville, MD. If you live in the area, please stop by and visit our guild sometime.

A couple of years ago, I decided that I didn't want to send my quilts to the longarmer. I wanted to BE the longarmer. I am just so thrilled with my decision to invest in an Innova® longarm machine with AutoPilot™. In addition to my longarm, I also own a Juki TL98Q (the best little piecing machine ever), a Husqvarna Viking embroidery machine, a Bernina 16-needle commercial embroidery machine, a serger, and a few other sewing machines. For me, the perfect day is one filled with piecing, embroidering or quilting!

I am so delighted with my Innova® that I decided to work with Virginia Longarm, the Innova® Distribution and Training Center for my region, as a sales representative. It is exciting that I get to do what I love - quilt and tell other people about quilting. My background is with computer software and IT consulting and support. I still work with that on a limited basis, but quilting is so much more fun! I always look foward to meeting other quilt ethusiasts, and do hope that we get the opportunity to meet one another soon.

Thanks for stopping by my site and Happy Quilting!
