Darlene was born into a family with many talents. Her mother was an excellent seamstress, who could look at a picture and then make the exact same replica. Many of her dresses when she was a young girl were copied out of the Vogue Catalogue. Her grandmother was a quilter, seamstress, and a piano teacher. Many of her talents come from her mother and grandmother.
Her love for sewing began at an early age. She would sew on her mother’s sewing machine with her mother looking over her shoulder and critiquing every stitch. When she was about 13 years old she took her Babysitting money and bought her first sewing machine. She has been sewing ever since.
In the last 5 years she has gotten more involved in the crafts and this lead her to purchase her first two embroidery machines. Her crafting side also led her to purchase her first Brother Scan-N-Cut. Darlene took to the Scan-N-cut because of all the endless possibility it offers in crafting. She became so good with the Scan-N-Cut other people started asking her to teach them. This is how she starting teaching and instructing. Since that passion has grown and she is now one of the top Scan-N-Cut educators in the country.
