Amy is the Owner of Amy’s Quilt Room, LLC in Uniontown, PA and is a seasoned quilter that began
sewing at a young age with her mother.
After receiving her BS in Structural Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University in 2000, she began her career in Construction Management. Over the years, Amy has worked on many well-known and rewarding projects in PA, MD, WV and OH but while traveling for her job, she found herself looking for a way to express her creative abilities outside of her career. She was introduced to quilting when she picked up her first quilt magazine and instantly knew that she had found her new passion!
Amy officially started her quilting career in 2003 when she attended a hand quilt class to learn how to make a Cathedral Quilt. She began machine piecing shortly after and continued to teach herself other quilting techniques. Amy quickly progressed from very simple projects to large quilts and eventually began attending classes to socialize. Since her first quilt, Amy has completed numerous quilts and projects of all sizes and finds great pleasure in gifting her masterpieces to her family and close friends. Every quilt that she has completed, has meaning and a story, but most importantly, she has learned from each of them.
Realizing her dream, Amy opened the doors to Amy’s Quilt Room (AQR) in February of 2015. AQR is a full service quilt shop that offers a comfortable setting where her guests and club members can sew, learn, share, grow and have fun exploring their creative abilities! Amy is very excited about her adventure as a business owner and hopes to give a fresh perspective on a tradition that has been around for years.
Because she enjoys the challenge of learning new techniques and tools, her technical background, attention to detail and creative mind, have influenced her ability to create new projects, write patterns and explore all angles of quilting. Amy is always developing new programs for AQR and writes patterns for her pattern company, The Bear Woods Quilt Company.
Amy lives in Uniontown, PA where she manages all aspects of AQR while continuing to work a full-time job in Construction Management. While she enjoys spending her free time with her friends and family, she also loves to travel as much as possible and finds inspiration with every place she visits. Amy is also a collector of fabric & featherweights and enjoys photography.
