Lorrie lives in Elk River, Minnesota with her husband and two children.  
Anyone that has done more than pass through Elk River knows it is a special
place, with great people.  "I have been very fortunate to have a gracious and
selfless mentor in Jamie Kalvestran of Scrap Bags™ and to have the
encouragement and help of my family and some dear friends in moving
forward with this business."
 Lorrie has been quilting for 15+ years and is  
most inspired to create quilts for life events – those things that change our
lives and inspire us to create something special to bless someone else.
 
Look for her nine months to Quilt projects - for anyone with nine
months (or less) to sew some baby love!

If you are inspired to sew for a new baby – whether you are a new
quilter or an experienced quilter, you will find something to love in
this pattern series.  Because there is nothing so sweet, or inspiring as
a new baby!
Great for the beginner, Quick for the accomplished!
