State Coordinator

My wonderful husband’s name is John and we live just northwest of Little Rock.

I am originally from Texas, moved to Arkansas when I got married and worked for about 12 years as a Quality Control Coordinator for a company providing customer service to Wells Fargo Home Mortgage.  A few years before I took early retirement, we imported some rare Gypsy Vanner Horses from England and now I get to enjoy them at my leisure.  We also enjoy getting out into the State Parks and our own property to hike trails and enjoy the beauty of Arkansas.

I became involved with a QOV group about 2 years ago when I purchased an embroidery machine.  While shopping at a local quilt store, the girls talked me into joining them, even though I knew very little about making quilts.  Since then however, I am now much more confident in my developing skills of piecing quilt tops!  We started our own QOV group and began working in an area that has never had a QOV Group and did not even know what QOVF was about.

I am looking forward to working as the State Coordinator for Arkansas, getting the word out about the mission of QOVF and helping interested parties develop their own groups around our State.  I am also very excited to be working with this wonderful team of people that are the QVOF.
