In the heart of quilting, a story of passion and triumph unfolds with Monica Peacock, the creative force behind The Quilted Peacock. From a childhood dream of becoming an interior designer, Monica's life took an unexpected turn when she faced a massive stroke in August 2007. Against all odds, Monica defied medical predictions with the support of her loved ones and divine intervention, marking the beginning of a remarkable journey of recovery.
Having sewn and crafted since childhood, Monica's life took a pause after the stroke. The sewing machine lay dormant, and fabrics were bid farewell. However, a turning point emerged in 2012 when Monica sought the perfect gift for her father's birthday. What started as a birthday gift transformed into a therapeutic journey, becoming Monica's refuge and creative haven.

Now, over 25 years later, Monica is the proud owner and operator of The Quilted Peacock. Her store, a testament to resilience and unwavering dedication, is a source of inspiration for fellow quilters. Monica's story embodies the transformative power of quilting, not only as an art form but as a source of healing and joy.
