    Marie Powers    London, Ohio

    I retired from working for the federal government in 2001.  I spent the next 7 years travelling with my husband until his death in 2008.  The question then was “What am I going to do with the rest of my life?”  I was a young widow, my kids were grown, I was retired, and I was lost so I went back to my roots.

    You see, my mother sat me down at her Singer treadle machine before I went to Kindergarten.  She put a box on the pedal, gave me lined paper and told me to sew on the lines.   I wanted baby doll clothes, and after 11 children my mom was tired.  That is how my lifelong sewing adventure started. 

    I have sewed just about everything.  Clothes, costumes, home decorations, crafts, machine embroidery and finally quilts.  I have taught classes at several quilt shops and guilds in Ohio and Florida.    I even taught to a group of women who admired my chenille sweatshirt jacket and wanted to learn how to make their own.  Now that was an adventure!! 

    Out of necessity, I have designed several quilted sewing bags which I used to transport my quilting/sewing “STUFF” back and forth between my Florida and Ohio homes.  But piecing quilt tops and making purses are my favorite types of sewing.
