Tucson, AZ has been home to Mary Beck and her family for the past 22 years. Hot days and cool nights offer plenty of sewing time, as well as having an empty nest! While piecing and quilting top her sewing favorites, just about anything with fabric will find its way into her sewing room. Embroidery, overlocking, software, quilting...it's all fun and full of creative potential.
