About Me

Welcome to my page. I'm Sharon Tucker and I own Grass Roots Quilt Studio in Blaine, WA.  I'm blessed to work from my home studio, where I long arm quilt for others, design patterns for magazines and workshops and make quilts.

I've sewn since I can remember. Like many of us, I learned  sitting on my mothers knee at the Singer treadle machine. Remembering what I sewed is impossible, I only know that I've always known about sewing. I still have that Singer treadle machine, it sits in my living room. It's a good reminder of keeping things simple in life.

My quilting journey began in the early 2000's, so I'm of the generation who always had a rotary cutter. However, I thought when I started down this slippery slope that the only reason one made a quilt top was so that they had something to hand quilt. OK, you can stop laughing, but I hand quilted everything in my early days of quilting. Yes, in the 2000's

In 2013 got the opportunity to learn more about the craft of quilting from Gwen Marston, who I greatly admire. What I loved about learning from Gwen was that she was a technique teacher, and with Gwen's blessing, I am now teaching some of her techniques that she passed along to me. My workshops and lectures are listed HERE.

When not away teaching, I run a long arm quilting business from my home studio, and I love stitching on other peoples quilt top. My job is to make your work look the best it can be, and it's such a thrill to watch these tops come to life as a quilt. Please contact me to turn some of your tops into quilts. sharon_tucker (at) outlook.com

Sharon, have you done any longarm quilting for any quilters on Lopez Island, WA where I live? For some reason your name rings a bell. I don't make quilts very often. I call myself a Quilt Historian instead. You can see my blogs by googling Quilt History Reports or Enchanted Quilters of Lopez Island. Keep up the good work! Karen A.
