Welcome to my website! I am so glad you dropped by to spend some quality time with the "Quilting Engineer!" By the way, the "Quilting Engineer" is me, Cindy Skelton. My business is the culmination of many years of planning, dreaming and working. Now that dream has become a reality!
The journey to this dream has been a long path. As many people do, my passion for crafts started when I was a young girl. Hours of learning and working on a wide variety of crafts that were inspired and cultivated by various family members gave me a lifetime of wonderful memories that I still cherish today. This passion continued even as I started my professional career at General Motors Corporation in their Research Laboratories, working on finite element analysis and strength of materials. Wow! How far from quilting is that! Actually, many of the technical aspects of my graduate and college degrees (Mechanical Engineering and Theoretical and Applied Mechanics), I really use in quilting!
I took a leave from GM after a wonderful career in order to stay home with our three sons. Once they were well on their way, I went back to school to earn a teaching certificate for Physics and Mathematics. This led to a teaching career (keeping count? this makes career number 3!) in high school that has lasted until just recently.
Now I am ready for the REAL excitement, my quilting career with all of you! I am so excited to be working with so many great people that I have already met on the next step of my life's journey!
