Meet Cheryl Kuczek, Independent Pattern Designer

One of the things I love about my job is meeting so many wonderful people! I’ve only just met Cheryl, and already she’s inspired me and gotten me excited about sewing up one of her dress patterns. Of course, I’ll stitch as much as possible on my serger, and post some pictures when it’s done. Cheryl will be demonstrating at Houston Quilt Market in the BERNINA Booth – stop by and check out her techniques for stitching fur and pleather. (Sorry – it’s not open to the public, just shop owners. If you can’t attend, don’t miss her blog, Paridiso Designs by Cheryl Kuczek.

I have been sewing since I was 15. I took at class in Anchorage, Alaska at a store that is now called Riehl Sew n’ Vac, and it was an awakening for my sewing soul!! I was hooked from that point on!
