Who is PS Quilting?
Hi! My name is Paul and I started PS Quilting in 2015 when my father was in the hospital. The quilt ministry at my church made a prayer quilt for my father who was in ICU at the time. One of the nurses saw the quilt and asked for if the quilt ministry would make one offering to donate to the minsitry. After seeing my father in the hospital, I knew I had to spend more time with my mother. She didn’t have a lot of my common interest so I asked if we could make the quilt together for the nurse. While sewing this quilt I realized how much I enjoyed doing the sewing and creating something unique to be enjoyed by someone. I found a way to work with my mom and spend time with her. I also went up to the quilt ministry at the church and the ladies there taught me how to freestyle quilt and discussed different ideas with me.
I have since bought a commercial embroidery machine and became certified as an Embroidery Specialist through OESD. I wanted to make my quilts more unique with embroidery embellishments. I also purchased a long arm quilting machine to do bigger quilts and better quilting.
My career of nearly 20 years has been in banking. Where I handle commercial real estate loans and personal loans. Quilting has helped me unwind after a long day and something I really enjoy when I have time in the evenings and those bad weather weekends.
