In the ‘90s, Michele Scott decided to take up a little hobby of quilting to pass the time. Like every other self-respecting quiltaholic, it quickly became a passion. Michele became especially fascinated with the freedom of free motion quilting, creating designs that need no marking. Embellishing quilts with a variety of decorative threads was thrilling to her, and she was determined to incorporate as many of them in her quilts as she could! Working with these threads could sometimes be frustrating, so she spent countless hours developing strategies to work with them more effectively.
