About the Founder of Quilt Dash
 

Tammy Harrison, Quilt Designing Computer Geek:

Tammy began quilting at the age of 19 - she was going to cosmetology college and met a classmate whose grandmother made quilts. When she saw one of those quilts, she asked her to make her one. Soon after she received the quilt, she read the saying, "When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love."

That was all it took, Tammy *knew* she had to learn how to make quilts!  Tammy had to make something with love, that would be kept and used and loved back.  Tammy had to make something that she didn't have in her own orphaned life - a quilt hug made with love.

Since then, Tammy has made hundreds of quilts (mostly for kids, of course, who need a loving quilted hug, too)...but, Tammy also found a working life in the online world.  Once she mastered successfully working from home on the computer, she's decided it's high time she combined her love of working at home with her love of quilting -- hence, her four children call her the Quilt Designing Computer Geek!

Tammy is married to a true Texican, and together they have four children, and are two of a kind, working in a full house!

About the Founder's Business Partner

Phyllis Dobbs, Artist:

I really enjoy my work and career working from my home studio creating art and designing fabrics and quilt and sewing patterns.  In addition to fabrics, my art is licensed for product design on gift, garden and home decor items. My designing is focused on quilts, sewing needlework.

I love color and have always loved fabric because of the designs and beautiful colors. Ive been designing professionally for 26 years, but I really started designing unprofessionally when I was old enough to use scissors and start cutting up fabrics. My mother taught me to sew and my aunt taught me needlework. My grandmother was a quilter. I was so lucky to have a family so entrenched in all the various needle arts.

I have always loved to draw and took painting classes throughout my life. My love of art and the various needle arts goes hand in hand for a unity in all I do.

My career started with my drawings that I turned into needlework (embroidery and cross stitch). Each step led to new mediums and techniques, including quilt design and quilt books books, art and fabric design.

For one of the companies that I worked with, I designed textile products for worldwide sales. These products were for holiday and Christmas items such as tree skirts, stockings and decorative ribbons as well as everyday products of placemats and tablerunners and decorative gift bags.

I love to teach and have taught nationally at trade shows and workshops/lectures for shops and guilds.

My formal training began at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL, where I obtained a B.S. degree in Interior Design.  My home studio is located in Birmingham, AL, where I live with my husband and my lucky black cat.
