March Spotlight - Calli!

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?
