Welcome to Stitchin’ in the Ditch

Established in 2009, Phyllis began by making t-shirt quilts, which lead to an expansion of providing long arm quilting services. While attending the Houston Quilt Market in 2011, she developed the idea of hosting monthly Saturday Sewing Days. She began to share her new ideas in small groups and before you know it, she was holding lectures and workshop for guild meetings, Saturday Sewing days, quilt shops, and quilt expos.

Phyllis is a Studio 180 Design certified instructor. She can demonstrate the Studio 180 Design tools for beginners through advanced quilters. Quilters will experience a well-designed lesson and improve their piecing accuracy for basic units as well as the Rapid Fire™ Hunter Star and the Rapid Fire™ Lemoyne Star.

Stitchin’ in the Ditch hosts an annual mini-retreat in October in Antioch, IL and a weekend retreat in December in Rockford, IL. We welcome quilters of every level. Join us for some quilting, group decision making, shopping, and laughing.
