Dana is incredibly talented and enjoys many crafts, from cake decorating, photography, and pottery, to sewing and quilting. Her love of sewing and all things fabric started as a child, learning from her grandmother. Wherever she has been in the world, she has search for fabric shops, sought out quilting friends and continued to hone her quilting skills. She has been a member of several quilt guilds and served as a guild president.  She also worked as a sales clerk and instructor for Quilter’s Quarters Quilt Shop in Leavenworth, Kansas.


Southern Stitches Quilt Shop is the realization of Dana's dream to own her own quilt shop and continue to promote the art of quilting.
