Elizabeth began her crafty journey knitting socks, sewing costumes, and decorating cakes. When a sewing friend presented her with a rotary cutter and a bag of scraps, another enthusiastic quilter was born.

Presently a certified judge with the Canadian Quilters Association/ACC, and the NACQJ, she has judged over 70 quilt and fiber art competitions throughout the US and Canada.
