About your quilter:My name is Lorna Shepard and quilting is my passion. I have been teaching and lecturing all things quilts for the past 15 years and machine quilting using a Gammill quilt machine for the past 7 years.

I love to see my customer’s quilts! I like to help you pick out your pattern and thread choices from my catalog of over 3500 designs to add the final layer in connecting your quilt. From a simple stipple to a complex floral design, we have you covered. Based on your needs, I create a custom catalog for you to pinpoint the pattern right for your quilt. And if I do not have what you are looking for, we can access patterns from the on-line catalogs of the best designers in the business.

When I quilt your quilt, I treat it as I do my own, using my honed skills and attention to the tiniest detail. Come see my quilts at Bear Paws Quilt Studio, where we make custom quilts, including photo, t-shirt, and memory quilts.

Read “sure to help” tips and techniques in my blog – I cover everything from picking fabrics to perfect binding!
