Let’s get to know Calli!
Hi Bee Friends, I’m so excited for March. It’s one of my favorite months of the year! I grew up in Salt Lake City and am the oldest of 5. I learned to quilt from my mom, Leslie Ison who has been a quilter for many years. I fell in love with fabric as a girl, going with my mom to Gentler Times. Gentler Times was a wonderful quilt shop in an old house in Salt Lake. Mom worked and taught quilting classes there for many years. She is an amazing quilter and teacher, and I feel very lucky to continue to learn from her.
I am a mom of three teenagers who are all in middle school. My son is in 9th grade and my twin daughters are in 8th. Maybe I shouldn’t say this too loud, but so far, I love being a mom of teenagers. They are a lot of fun, interesting, and even inspiring to be around. We enjoy skiing together as a family and the rest of the year is spent watching them play a lot of soccer.
Did you know that soccer and quilting go together? I rarely leave for a game without having “halftime” hexies or other handwork projects.
In my spare time, I love to read or watch old Hitchcock movies with my girls. I also love to cook and bake. I love to be at home, but I also love to travel. My favorite treats are hot homemade bread right out of the oven and good pie.
What do you like to do with your spare time?
