Fabric, thread and the tools with which to manipulate them are completely irresistible to Shelly. Software, sewing systems, and teaching are icing on the cake. As the current BERNINA Educator for Bear Paw Quilting & BERNINA in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, she is thrilled to be working in a field where all of these loves can meet.
Shelly is experienced teaching mastery for all BERNINA sewing and embroidery machines, sergers, DesignWorks, Quilters Creative touch, and Software 7. In addition she teaches free motion quilting, writes patterns and has private sewing and quilting classes for clients of all ages.
Working from home raising her children and managing family businesses for most of her life has been a real blessing. Shelly’s Mom got her started sewing as a small child and by Junior High she was making most of her own clothes. Currently her focus has shifted to machine embroidery, quilting, home decorating, bags and crafts with only an occasional garment.
Until 1996 Shelly called Oklahoma and Texas home. Since then, she happily resides in Hayden Lake, Idaho with her husband of 33 years, Robert. They have 4 children, a son in law, a daughter in law, and 2 grandsons (with #3 on the way).
