Hi! I am Emi, a longarm quilter, pattern designer, wife & mother of four.
I was born in the United States, grew up in Kobe, Japan, and I am currently living in Ottawa, Canada.
My quilting seed was planted during quilting club in 3rd grade, but it did not sprout until my early 20s when I fell in love with a quilt at a friend's apartment made by her grandmother.
I often tell people that when you give a quilt or handmade treasure away, you not only touch the recipient, but others as well!

The majority of children and young adults are not learning how to sew in the home or at school like so many did in the past.
Why Choose Wide Backing?
The money savings are undeniable, but what are the pros and cons to consider when deciding whether to use wide backing for your quilts?
Emi is amazing!! Her work on a quilt my sisters and I spent over a year making finished the piece perfectly! She made sure our quilt wasn’t only beautifully quilted but also ensured that it was going to stand up to years of love and cuddles. I cannot wait to finish my next quilt so I can send it her way!
Emi was my quilter for about two years prior to her moving. Her work was always neat, even, and without knotted areas or pleats. She was diligent to understand my vision for a project or offered great ideas about design or color when I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted for a quilt. The quilting Emi did for me never failed to please!
