Peggy Nagle has been long arm quilting since 2000 – over 16 years! She has won awards for her machine quilting and surprisingly to Peggy, even one for hand quilting!
Peggy is a member of the Grand River Modern Quilt Guild, Peggy has always loved quilts, but since retirement from her day job, quilting has become an overarching passion. Peggy coordinates the program for Heritage Quilters, a small group of active quilters who are keen to develop new skills. Peggy is also active in SOLO, the Southern Ontario Longarm Organization, a group of longarmers who meet twice a year for professional development and sharing.
In addition to quilting, Peggy judges quilting at fairs and quilt shows and teaches quilting, both privately and through guilds.
