A little about Pauline Clarke
Without giving away my age, I can tell you that I have over 40 years sewing experience. It all started when the jeans my mother purchased for me as a young teen where not tight enough, so I took over her White sewing machine to make them fit. From there I started making my own clothes and later on those of my daughter.
I was instrumental in starting up the Kemptville Quilters Guild back in 2000 which has now grown in membership. I was the secretary and minute taker for the first two year term. I’m currently an active member of the Richmond Area Quilters’ Guild and for several years volunteered my time and efforts in raising funds for “The Quilt,” which benefits individuals suffering with cancer.
I’ve made and donated charity quilts to various fund raising efforts such as Kemptville District Hospital, Victoria Quilts, the Children’s Wish Foundation and woman’s shelters.
My 3 Dogs Quilting business came to me after I was laid off from being an executive assistant in high tech. My friend, Sandra had me creating quilts from her children’s old clothing for the past few years and the idea struck me, why not offer this service to others? With recycling in the forefront of our daily lives, why not offer this recycling concept with your unused clothing? I’m sure we all have clothing from our childhood or loved ones clothing that can be turned into a loving memory quilt. This not only cleans out your closet but also gives your clothing a new purpose.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my portfolio and look forward to speaking with you about your quilting projects.
