About Us


Hi! Welcome to our little world of sewing and quilting. We are a mother and daughter team working to bring a little more joy into the world through quilted and sewn home goods.



Linda Chaney (mother)

A retired research scientist, Linda has been sewing since childhood.  She grew up sewing her own clothing and was introduced to the art of quilting by her mother-in-law in 1986.  Linda loves learning new techniques, playing with new gadgets and experimenting with fabric.  An avid “collector” of fabric, she enjoys the opportunity to sew, quilt and create with her daughter, Laura.  Her favorite aspect of creating fabric bowls and vases is drafting the new patterns and experimenting with different techniques to achieve the desired result.  Her best ideas come to her in the middle of the night, and she can frequently be found in her sewing room at 4 a.m. when genius has struck.  Linda lives in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, who is also a research scientist.



Laura Chaney Gerth (daughter)

Laura lives in San Francisco, California where she works as the Director of International Student and Scholars at the University of San Francisco. Although she dabbled in sewing and quilting during her childhood, she didn’t begin creating in earnest until her sophomore year of college.  Her first true project was inspired by a visit to her grandmother’s quilter in Amish country.  Under the tutelage of both her grandmother and mother, Laura completed her first small wall hanging and began looking to the next challenge.  She loves the opportunity to quilt and create with her mother, and looks forward to their annual mother-daughter trip to the American Quilter’s Society quilt show in Paducah, Kentucky, each year.
