We are so excited to have Micki here for this event. Micki resides in Hillsboro, Illinois, a rural farming community where she has lived her entire life. She was introduced to her love of sewing through 4-H and doing alterations at a men's clothing store at the young age of 16. Growing up in a family of five children, Micki shared the joy of creating crafts and sewing with her mother, who always made the family's clothing.
Later in life, Micki found her passion for longarm quilting while at a Mothers' Day outing with her sisters, taking their mother to a quilt show. While there, Micki's sister spotted a Handi Quilter machine and said it looked like something she would like. Prompted by the retailer, Micki tried the machine and she was hooked! Two months later she ordered the HQ Fusion with Pro-Stitcher and never looked back!
