Mary M. Bishop Lee (1915-1993)
Mary's Quilt Teacher
of "Simply Quilts"
and Mary C. Lee-Young
My husband Doc and I moved from San Gabriel, CA in 2005 to Utah. We purchased our first home with an unfinished basement and Doc with my help designed my quilt studio, his fire & photography memorabilia studio and computer repair area. Doc works from home providing Genealogy Research Assistance
I share my love for quilting with many, including my daughter Stacy, who also loves to scrapbook. I am a dedicated quilter; this year alone I have completed 8 baby quilts as gifts, quilting 2 full quilts and beginning on a quilt for one of my California classmates.
When I am not working full time for an Ophthalmologist and not quilting, I enjoy many other hobbies and interest such as candle making, wreath decorating, crocheting, cross-stitch & embroidery by hand and machine. Some of my other interests are camping, bicycle riding, reading, and yes, I dabble a bit with photography (some of my pics are on this site).
I find gardening relaxing and natures quilt of flowers.
My Mother bestowed on me the joy of creativity, and that “a personal gift is the best gift that you can possibly give” I also learned how enjoyable it is to get something for less, and make it your own. Please visit these links of my personal gift all seasons and holidays. I have been working with unfinished furniture for over 20 years, fabric shelving cabinets, cutting table, china cabinet, breakfast nook, toy chest, and a computer work center, you name it I can finish it!
Having a supportive and understanding husband is a big plus, no pressure from the man upstairs (the man is Doc and he works upstairs). My quilt studio is in the basement. Doc is a retired fire-fighter, has been a professional wedding photographer, now dabbles in computer servicing, our web-site manager, digital photography, digital video and genealogy research.
Quilting has gone high tech, and my husband stays on top of computer technology. Recently he surprised me with a gift having started my own quilting business, a Janome 11000, Wow!
And prior to our basement being finished, Doc at a quilting show nudged me over to the booth for HQ-Sixteen long arms. Need I say, without twisting my arm, I am a proud owner of my very own HQ-Sixteen.
I want to thank you for visiting my site and hope that you had fun learning about me ~ come back and visit anytime ~
Happy stitching & remember… When life gives you scraps… MAKE A QUILT!
