Phillips Fiber Art has been Cheryl's full time job for over 20 years and Gary, her husband, traded his 9-5 in about 13 years ago.
Gary moved around quite a bit as a kid. He was born in Montana and graduated from high school in California, then spent a summer in Guam with his mom after high school. A graduate of Mesa College in automotive technology, Gary's worked on cars and other machines for many years. He's handy and always ready for a challenge.
Cheryl has always lived in Colorado, but in many different areas. She has a bachelors degree in Geology and is always seeing the patterns in geological formations. Having a knack for mathematics, quilt design was a natural progression for her. Finding ways to make extra money she turned her quilting hobby into a career.
Cheryl's first book "Quilts Without Corners" was first published in 1993 by a local Colorado company. She then wrote and self-published "WedgeWorks", "WedgeWorks II" and many others. Gary and Cheryl have worked as a team to develop and manufacture an assortment of acrylic quilting tools.
