Sherri Hisey

 Sheri Hisey Border Creek Station

Sheri Hisey Border Creek Station

Border Creek Station Pattern Company

Sherri began quilting over 30 years ago when a good friend signed them both up for beginner classes calling her on vacation to tell her they were going to learn how to quilt! That beginner class, all sewn by hand and cut with scissors, was repeated three times. Sherri stands by her story that it was all because they provided tea, cookies and free babysitting!

When Sherri started teaching quilting classes, she began by taking the mystery out of the quilt making process and focused on mastering solid techniques so quilters would have confidence to complete the projects they wanted to, while keeping the emphasis on fun. As a joke to her students Sherri created a mystery project to keep them guessing and have fun with this mysterious quilting adventure. They loved the process and demanded more. So ironically, through her Border Creek Station Pattern Company, Sherri brought “mystery” and “fun” back together with the BCS Mystery Quilt Club. As one of the largest mystery quilt programs offered, Sherri designs an original quilt each year and has done so for the last 18 years.

Sherri lives in a small ‘ghost-town’ village of Kilworthy in Ontario, Canada with her very supportive husband Ron (who works fulltime with Sherri including binding all of her quilts - he is a keeper!) and since their children have left the nest, they also keep busy with their two furry pals Jessie and Logan, both hunting dogs who love the outdoors and of course, cuddling with quilts.

PROJECTS FOR THE CRUISE

Sherri is working on something special for this trip. Sherry is planning 2 projects, one is a Mystery.

This project uses mock up fabrics  batiks in blues. The project is 71 x 81.
