Alyce Taylor - Co-owner of Quilting Matilda

I've had a love affair with fabric and sewing since being given a needle, some thread and a length of feed sack at about age 7. I've made clothing, curtains, appliqued sweat shirts, over 500 quilted purses and pieced a few quilts. I waited until I retired from teaching to begin to quit in earnest. I bought a longarm as a retirement gift to myself, but let it sit for over 2 years because it was scary and I had no idea where to go for lessons. When I finally learned how to use it, I was unstoppable. A dear friend joined me in the fun and we decided it would be wise to form a business so we could buy supplies at wholesale! Thus Quilting Matilda was born. Who knew we would be successful! Certainly not us, but here we are, over 2 years later, having a great time and working with wonderful people, companies, designers and, OH, did I mention the FABRIC!
