I want to share my latest accomplishment. This time I made a bed quilt for my kids on my Handi Quilter Avante longarm machine. It took me a little bit of time to make friends with my new machine. I will admit I was slightly intimidated even though I had been trained to use it by the trained staff at Handi Quilter in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was a change from my comfortable home machine — moving the machine rather than the fabric — and the speed was just incredible. However, it didn’t take long for me to see the merits of my new friend. I definitely found a new comfort zone. Continue Reading →
I have very exciting news. I just came back from a great trip to the US where I met and learned from the great team at Handi Quilter.
I am now going to be selling the Handi Quilter long-arm and mid-arm machines in Israel. So if you are interested in exploring this opportunity, drop me a line or give me a call.
The Handi Quilter machines are very powerful, graceful machines that will enhance your quilting experience immensely.
There are three machines that would most likely fit the needs of quilters in Israel.
This series of six quilts was made as a commission for someone who plans to hang the quilts along her spiral staircase.
It was the best commission ever! I took the photos and she chose the ones she liked best.
Each quilt is the same size, 12″ x 22″ and bordered with the same fabric. But that’s where the similarity ends!
They are all beautiful places in Israel — that’s why I enjoyed making them so much!
She sat on his lap. She was elegant and careful about her outward show. He wore baggy pants and scoffed up shoes. They were opposites in their appearance but they were attracted to each other because opposites attract. They were soul mates and also “sole mates”!
The exhibit will run through 10 October 2015. Continue Reading →
Sometimes good can come out of a horrible event. That’s what has occurred as a result of the brutal killings of three lovely, innocent teens in Israel. The Jewish population was galvanized to find the boys and once the truth was known — that they had been senselessly murdered — the country mourned together. As a result of their deaths, Israel retaliated, only to discover the dangers in Gaza that awaited us. I never think things happen just by chance. Continue Reading →

Quilting Arts Magazine ran a Reader’s Challenge: Come up with a quilt that fits the theme “In the Garden”. There were more than 150 submissions and 12 “winners”. My quilt, “Wild Poppies” made the cut and appears in the June-July 2014 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. Continue Reading →
Winter is a great time to challenge myself. I hate the cold and prefer to hybrinate inside next to my warm… sewing machine.
I finally decided to start taking drawing classes and they have really made a difference. I have learned a ton about perspective and rules of drawing. I drew a self portrait, which everyone agrees looks like someone or everyone in my family. I think it’s a great start! Naomi Ocean, my art teacher and Riki Metz my fellow art student are both incredibly supportive and share so much knowledge. Thanks you guys! Continue Reading →
