After meeting Alex at the BERNINA Ambassador Reunion in December, Tracy volunteered to help out on TQS. She will act as our "roving reporter," informing us about interesting happenings in the quilt world. She will take us on studio tours of prominent quilters, visit quilt shows and offer the occasional tutorial.
When not working for us, Tracy can be found at her day job, working for Generation Q Magazine or blogging at www.sewsupportive.com, where she talks about ways to keep sewing with health challenges such as arthritis and autoimmune disease.
"I started quilting 20 plus years ago and became obsessed pretty quickly. It's a Quilt, Sew, Live, Breathe kinda thing - which just happens to be the GenQ motto. I started writing for Generation Q in 2012 and immediately started a feature called We Sew 2 where I design projects for kids to sew. It's been great working for this independent magazine with a small but mighty team. In 2013, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called Sjogren's Syndrome and it changed how I make quilts. I wrote an article a while back about products that help you continue to sew when you experience health issues and decided this is the focus for my blog going forward. I created Sew Supportive because I want to help people keep sewing no matter what health issues come their way!"
