About Lorna

I’d like to say I am retired because it has a special ring to it. Life of leisure – time on your hands. Palm trees… I am retired from teaching, selling real estate and being a school board trustee but I am definitely not retired from all things fabric, thread and yarn. I am thrilled to see the resurgence in the interest in sewing, quilting and DIY projects.

I started designing patterns on a request from Modern Bee for their 2015 Row by Row pattern.  Since that I time I added the Gazebo in Niagara on the Lake, Midnight at the Falls, Tweeter Family and the  Celebration Quilt ,”Canada 150″ for the 150th anniversary of confederation.


I am the past vice-president/ media guru for the Niagara Modern Quilt Guild soaking up all the knowledge and skills of some very interesting quilters. Gramma to Mavis, Leo, Kees, Alec, Owen and Wil. Mom to Andrea, Carlo, Lelia and Irene. Wife to Giancarlo whose spirit is always with me. Just not here to take care of life’s little mysteries.

    I love the look of “the trader” and plan to make the lap size but wanted to ask if there were any plans to sell a pattern for a larger, bed size version which I could tackle after? Thank you. Julia Page
