Cristy Fincher

Cristy grew up watching her mom Sharon Schamber sew. It was deliriously fun to watch those beautiful fabrics turn into “princess dresses” from her special perch atop the sewing table. It would be easy to say that all that early “fabric” exposure has lead to her lifelong love and admiration for sewing and design but one does have to wonder if some of it isn’t genetic.
As an adult it was easy for Cristy to fall in love with quilting. She began piecing by hand but her impatience of wanting to see the design come together soon lead her to use the machine for piecing and appliqué.
As an elementary school teacher, she enjoys teaching her students about quilting and helping them put together blocks for special projects. But Cristy hasn’t been able to stop there, she truly enjoys teaching adults as well. It’s pure satisfaction to see quilters’ faces light up as they learn new techniques.
