“Early to bed, early to rise, makes a woman healthy, wealthy and wise.”
Sews On: BERNINA 880 & 710
Lori is originally from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin and moved to Orlando, Florida in 1987. She has a son Kyle who is serving our country in the United States Air Force. She also has a 12-year old daughter Anastasia from her husband Walter. In 2015, Kyle blessed Lori with a grandson, Easton James.
In Orlando, Lori graduated from college and went on to become a court reporter. During her time as a court reporter, she learned and studied and became an entrepreneur. Later in her career, Lori opened a court reporting agency that serviced the state of Florida. After 24 years, it was time to retire.
It was during retirement that Lori decided to pick up the hobby of sewing/quilting. She went on to take classes and create for the next two years. Still, there was something missing in her life….
One day, Lori was in a fabric shop and overheard that Quilters’ Choice was for sale. The rest is history. Now known as The Inspired Sewist, Lori’s sprinkled her enthusiasm and visions upon the staff and customers. Her favorite part of the day is when a team member or customer brings in their creations to show her.
When not at work, Lori enjoys working out, deep-sea fishing, boating, travelling, cooking, reading, sewing, quilting and embroidering. To really decompress, you can find her hunkered down with her two puppies watching something on Netflix.
