I began sewing as a little girl. My Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmothers all helped in teaching me how to sew.
I made my own clothes, dolls, clowns, my children's clothes as they were growing up and my husband's shirts. I have always enjoyed sitting at my sewing machine and making something special for myself or my family.
In about 2005, I decided I wanted to do some machine embroidery. I purchased my first machine and was amazed at what I could do. I quickly moved up in machines for the things they could do better than the first basic model I originally purchased.
Soon, I was taking a basic quilting class, mostly to see if my sewing skills over the years could be used in the quilting process as well. My mother was a quilter, but mostly she did hand quilting. I have never been interested in hand quilting. It just takes too long to produce something to show for all the hard work done on it.
So, I fell in love with machine quilting. I have done many quilts over the past years and quilted some of them on my domestic machine with straight line quilting in the ditch or across blocks in mostly straight lines. Quickly I was becoming unsatisfied with the limits that I could quilt with my home machine and then wanted to do long arm quilting because I wanted to do more designs.
So, the search was on for a long arm quilting machine and frame that I could use in my studio to quilt my own quilts. I quickly wanted to share my skills on my long arm with others and help them enjoy the quilt tops they have made so that they may be able to finish them.
While I am quilting for someone, I imagine what some of the fabrics may have been used for. A little boy's pajamas, a teenaged girl's blouse, an apron that has seen many years in the kitchen until only parts are left to use. It's fun to imagine the life of some of the fabrics in some of these quilts.
Thus, my love for quilting has grown. I hope your love for the hand made quilts is like mine. What a joy to see the face of someone light up when they see their finished top that has been turned into a finished quilt.
Jeff joined me in the quilting studio in 2014. He loves to quilt and do special things for our customers with our Gammill long arm. He brings a special art to our business.
Jeff is retired Air Force and retired Air Force Jr ROTC instructor at Jenks High School.
Jeff loves the mechanical and artistic side of long arm machine quilting. I think he should have been an engineer. He wants everything to be perfect and precise. You will be pleased that he takes pains to make sure every quilt is done well and is balanced in the design that is chosen and the color of thread is perfect for the design.

New Look for a Website
Getting a new website design and picking out a logo for my business are bigger jobs than I ever imagined. It has been difficult choosing and deciding what type of logo I wanted, what I wanted to portray from the type of logo and what I wanted it to say.
The resources available on the internet have been instrumental in assisting me with the design and decision of the logo design that I have chosen. If you need advice on what your logo should look like, you need to understand the values of a logo identity before finding the salient features of yours. A logo identity is a quintessential in launching your business. It’s the basis for branding your business. If you find you are still not sure where to start, go to the professionals. The LogoGuruDesign.com people have tons of categories to choose a logo design from and a wonderful staff of graphic designers to assist you in creating just the right design. After all, I want it to say, "This is Threaded Hearts Studio and I do long arm quilting for others as well as for myself. I also love what I do and I want my new logo to portray my Love of Quilting (to steal a phrase from my favorite quilting show)."
I do hope you give them a try on your new venture. I am sure you will be pleased with the results. They can assist you in designing your logo, add it to business card designs, print it on letterhead and envelopes. Great website, great people, great experience!
