Tell Us How You Became The.Weekend Quilter
Whether you work full-time, part-time, stay-at-home parent, retired, going through a transition in your life, we’re all weekend quilters. We all make time during the week to dedicate and create.
I started quilting back in 2015 but I didn’t start documenting and sharing my work on the Quiltstagram till a little over three years ago. During this period in my life, there was quite a bit of change going on at work and I had a hard time adjusting to it. It was probably one of my low points in life. I dreaded going into work every day. The hours were long as more work came piling in. Working after hours and weekends started to become the norm, and the work culture was toxic. My work colleagues and I often joked about a meeting room in the office where people (including myself) always came out crying. I turned to quilting as my creative outlet and as a means to destress from my corporate job — and to force myself to not bring work home and check my emails when I wasn’t at work.
I finally quit my job late-2018 when I got married to an American and relocated to NYC. Waiting for my green card and work permit for 11 months forced me to reassess my career in the corporate world. These days, I am a modern quilter and pattern designer at The Weekend Quilter and a co-host of Quilt Buzz Podcast. I aim to bring the quilting community together and pass down this creative legacy through my designs.
