Hello Fellow Quilters!!!
My name is Mary Slack and I have been sewing and quilting for over 40 years! I made my first quilt in 1976 for the Bicentennial, I was a baby. My Mom helped me and I still have it today. Is it perfect? NO! Is it filled with love and good memories? Absolutely!!
I learned to sew from my mom. She was a true seamstress. She made the most beautiful clothes for my family as well as my barbies. I still have her Singer Sewing machine and can picture her sewing every time I look at it. Again lots of love and wonderful memories.
Fast forward to 2020. A crossroad for many people. Our town had lived through two major fire storms in the past three years and now the pandemic. I was laid off from my full time job as a Chef and Restaurant Manager. Our home kitchen was torn up due to a dishwasher flood and the insurance company was not being helpful at all. I turned to my sewing machine and sewed more than ever and I quilted—ALL THE TIME! I made quilts for everyone, with love and good memories. The small ones I quilted on my domestic machine. The larger ones I sent out to be longarm quilted. One day I called my longarm quilter and she told me she had moved out of the area, a long way out of our area. At that moment I thought, “What if I could do the longarm quilting myself?!
I poured a glass of wine and went to find my husband who was in the garage. “Honey,” I said,
“I have a CRAZY idea!” My dear husband encouraged me and was excited for me to start my own business. I went to classes, I researched and kept sewing. Sew Krazee was born!
My beautiful Handi Quilter Forte arrived and I have quilted every day since. I always have a quilt on my frame and love every stitch.
I have quilted hundreds of quilts for myself and other people and I would be honored to quilt yours. I treat every quilt as if it were my very own filled with love and good memories. Give me a call today, coffee is on.
Lots of Love,
