Featured Quilter: Sandi McMillan sewed clothing before discovering the world of quilting, with the purchase in 1988 of Mary Ellen Hopkins book, It’s OK to Sit On My Quilt. It was soon evident that her other sewing and the running of her fabric shop, Sandi’s Sew Inn, was taking too much of her quilting time. So, in 1993 she sold the shop to devote more time to her new sewing passion. She traveled to take workshops and learn new quilting techniques which she later taught in lectures and workshops. She enjoys nearly all aspects of quilting, her favorite is hand appliqué and machine quilting. She was inducted into the Nebraska State Quilt Guild Hall of Fame in 2013.
Sandi will be sharing many of her national award winning quilts along with her Nebraska State Fair Best of Shows at Threads Across Nebraska.
