Alice’s quilting obsession began with the birth of her first child (now adult) and she’s been at it ever since! She loves working with batiks in landscapes and Asian art quilts. When she first started quilting, she felt a deep connection with women before her. Keeping the old needle arts traditions alive has been a driving passion behind the creation of Alice in Stitches.
While Alice was raising her two boys, her business began with sewing windsocks and evolved to creating art quilts which she sold at local festivals in the Seattle/Bellevue area. When they were almost grown, she decided it was time for a change and opened the quilt shop (online) that she had always wanted. This too has been an evolving process, adding unique products as we find them from the far corners of the world.
Personally, when Alice is not involved in the crafting world, she loves travel, photography, spending time with friends and family and dancing at our local country joint, The Little Red Hen.
