A life journey brought Vicki back to the Spooner area where she grew up on a dairy farm, learned to sew, hook rugs, and crochet from her Grandma and in 4-H. Loving the creativity of working with fabric stayed with her while making clothes, costumes, and quilts for her 2 children and husband. Through the years, the sewing took a back seat to family, friends and her technology leadership profession. Vicki began quilting again 15 years ago when her daughter asked for a basic sewing lesson when she wanted to learn to quilt. And quilt she did – drawing on her love of media in the arts. She encouraged her mom to get back into quilting and Vicki’s life took another great path!

Vicki served the educational community through her professional life as an education technology leader and promoter of school libraries. Change is the constant in Vicki’s life as she always looked for ways to share her experiences and serve others. This came to her again as discussions began on what would be ‘next’. After deciding to move to the Spooner area to ‘retire’, the ‘next’ came – opening a quilt shop - Seams Like Quilting in Spooner, WI.

Her educational background opens the opportunity to teach again, but this time with fabric instead of the newest technologies! She is very grateful to her daughter and her spouse, her son and his spouse, her grandsons, and her husband for supporting her ‘next’ on this life path.

“There’s lots of ways to be, as a person. And some people express their deep appreciation in different ways. But one of the ways that I believe people express their appreciation to the rest of humanity is to make something wonderful and put it out there. And you (may) never meet the people. You (may) never shake their hands. You (may) never hear their story or tell yours. But somehow, in the act of making something with a great deal of care and love, something’s transmitted there. And it’s a way of expressing to the rest of our species our deep appreciation. So we need to be true to who we are and remember what’s really important to us.”

Steve Jobs, 2007
