Pam Geisel, the artist behind For Quilts Sake

My name is Pam Geisel and this is the first quilt that I made, back in 2001. What's unusual about me making quilts, is when I was in junior high, I took shop class because I didn't want to learn how to sew or even how to cook (I still don't cook).

I took a class on piecing and quilting by hand and I was hooked. I loved how it came out but it just took so long.

I decided then that if I used the sewing machine, I only had to know how to go forward and backward; I didn't have to know how to make button holes or put in zippers. Since then I've been learning from books and making it up as I go along.

Now I create and sell original, handmade art quilts and quilt-related art both on-line and at art shows in southwest Ohio. To see my quilts on-line, visit my website at www.forquiltssake.com.

Hi, Pam, Welcome to blogland. I guess I'm that FACS teacher you tried to avoid by taking shop!! Hopefully, you will still be my 'blog friend'. ~Natalie
