Heidi Buxman is the owner of Sew Together Quilt Shop. It has been her dream to have her own shop since she was in her early 20’s. Heidi remembers playing on the floor, pinning patterns for her mother when she was very young and then made her first dress when she was 13 years old. She discovered the world of quilting in 2015. Since then, she has produced many quilts, become a longarm quilter and now a quilt shop owner. Heidi has an excellent eye for combining color and textures and her unique art quilts have won several awards at the New Mexico State Fair. She enjoys assisting her customers with design and fabric selections as well as sharing her vast knowledge of quilting tips and techniques.
Dawn Myers has been making quilts since her Grandmother taught her as a little girl. After retiring as a Vice President of Human Resources, she decided to go into quilting full time. Dawn has been a professional longarm quilter for 14 years and does custom as well as edge to edge work. She has taught Art Quilting in New Mexico, Washington State, Texas and Colorado. Her work has been shown at American Quilters, at local shows and in a local magazine. She sells her Art Quilts through her site on Facebook.
Karen Barrett has been sewing her whole life. Her earliest childhood memory is sitting under the sewing machine, as a toddler, watching the threads fall around her.
About fifteen years ago, Karen discovered quilting and that started a whole new chapter in her life. After gaining some experience, she began teaching quilting and opened a sewing school in Texas called Learn to Sew – Learn to Quilt. She loves teaching, especially introducing newbies to the magic of a needle pulling thread.
Since moving to New Mexico four years ago, Karen has taught scores of students everything from Beginning Sewing and Beginning Quilting to more complex skills such as Free Motion Quilting, Fabric Manipulation and Embellishment, Applique, Trapunto, Curves, and Paper Piecing. Many of her students have taken multiple classes from Karen and her evaluations are consistently excellent.
