I have been quilting for about 25 years and decided to turn my passion for quilting and hand made items into a company that I will 'retire' to someday! Butterflythreads started as a small company in 2011 when I invested in a long arm quilting machine. I specialize in edge to edge and custom quilting. I also like to quilt large sized fabrics to make into smaller gift items.
My interest in creating and sewing began as a young child. I grew up with a mother who loved to sew. She showed me the basics of the sewing machine and let me create to my heart's desire ! Another influence that you will see in my posts is that of my grandmother. She was about as thrifty as they come! Thus the name - Thrifty Emma when I find something that can be re-purposed or upcycled.
Thank you for visiting and I hope that you are inspired by the designs that you see.
