Cindy began sewing in Jr. High Home Economics, making her own clothes and crafts. She officially became a quilter when she was introduced to the rotary cutter and half-square triangle in 1985.

She was an interior decorator for 8 years in Arizona and Utah. She began making and selling appliquéd wallhangings, clothing and crafts as a home business and found her interests expanding to include teaching quilting and making commission pieces. Today, she makes samples for major companies like
P&B, Springs, RJR, and Quiltmaker Magazine.

Cindy is very involved in several local quilt guilds and has held the office of president for the
Omaha Quilters Guild.  She has served as Chairman of the Steering/Long Range Planning Committee for several years. 

A member of the
Nebraska State Quilt Guild, Omaha Quilters' Guild, Cottonwood Quilt Guild, The Appliqué Society, NQA and AQS, she is very active in the local and national quilt family. She was the local co-chairman for the 1999 National Quilting Association Show in Omaha, Nebraska.

Cindy became a National Quilting Association Certified Quilt Judge in 1998.  She has judged for local and national shows around the country.  

She is currently teaching quilting and specialty clothing classes at Bernina Sewing Center in Omaha. She specializes in teaching rotary and sewing machine skills in all aspects of quiltmaking to all skill levels and teaches several wearable art classes.  “Professional Quilter Magazine” nominated her for National Teacher of the Year in 2009.

She has co-authored books and line of Block of the Month patterns with Jo Morton. One of the patterns was featured on the cover of "Keepsake Quilting Catalog", Spring 2001.

She has been published in “Quiltmaker”, “Fons and Porters” magazines and Leisure Arts publications.  Cindy’s quilts have been shown in AQS, Houston, PIQS and NQA.

Today Cindy balances being a busy quilter with enjoying her 2 grandsons and going fishing as often as possible!
