Hello and welcome to your blog's eye view into my studio. In case we haven't met through Facebook or my personal blog, let me tell you a little about myself and The Quilted House. My name is Michelle and I am so lucky to be the artistic and creative mind behind The Quilted House. I make beautiful and unique quilted items from my wonderful studio in my home in Rochester, New York. The Quilted House provides commissioned custom quilting and ready-to-purchase items from the online shop.
Notetaker listed in the shop
I've been quilting and sewing for about ten years now. My mother taught me how to sew and my mother-in-law graciously taught me how to quilt. I've been going strong ever since. I do all my work on one of my two Husqvarna Viking Sapphire sewing machines - "Sapphire" and "Esmeralda" (yes, I, of course, name my machines.)
While I do sell my work at arts and crafts shows around town, Etsy has been the online forum for my quilted wares for a little over a year now. Running an online shop is challenging, but I love the opportunity to reach people across the world. Items from my shop are in Norway, Denmark, Mexico, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Britian, and all across the United States. What a thrill it is to know that people all over the world are enjoying items made from my hands.
