Robin received her first sewing machine at the age of twelve and learned basic skills from her mother and grandmother. This knowledge came in handy while raising her four children. She did special projects such as making curtains for the house and creating Halloween costumes for the kids. When her youngest two children went to college thirteen years ago and left her with an empty nest, she bought her first Bernina at Cottonwood and took classes to learn to quilt. She now owns four Berninas, teaches quilting, and has worked at Cottonwood for over ten years! Her closest circle of friends are quilters and she loves working with her Cottonwood team to serve our customers, guide new quilting enthusiasts, make new friends, and socialize with old ones!
Teresa is a military brat born in KY. She has lived all around the world and done all sorts of jobs. She learned embroidery at six years old with her grandmother by making a pillowcase. Teresa has sewn many things, including costumes, slip covers, dresses, and even quilts!
