Some may know Cindy as the quilter/owner of Custom Creations or as a vendor at many large retail quilt shows with her rainbow table of "Fat Quarter Queen" fabrics. She became addicted to appliqué in the early 1980s and searched everywhere for fun and unique machine appliqué designs. After years of selling her products at area boutiques and bazaars, she taught machine appliqué classes at many locations throughout Southern California, primarily at The Fabric Patch in Upland. By 1995, she was designing and wholesaling patterns under the Custom Creations label. Her current focus on retail shows has been rewarded with a loyal customer base.
