Jessica Purcell

I am a Mom of three preemies and an Information Technical Professional;
but my passion is quilting! My great-grandmother made a living by making
quilts. She actually had a pulley system in her front room that would lower a
quilt so she could quilt it and then raise it for company. When I was a child,
I remember laying underneath the quilts my grandmother and her sisters
were quilting. I loved listening to them. When I married and we moved into
my Great-Grandmothers house, I got the quilting bug. I like to think her
spirit influenced me! I feel the generations of quilting in my blood, although I
am the only current quilter in my family, and I am proud to carry the legacy. This is my third year teaching at Sew Simply Stitched. I have been
teaching classes for a few years now and am the Kings Peak Quilt Guild
President. I love pre-cuts and all the techniques, rulers, tools and resources
that make quilting so much easier than anything our grandmothers had!
