Rita is a nationally known speaker and teacher and president of
Creations SewClever, Inc., in Chillicothe, Ohio. She's a native
of Northeastern Ohio with a B.A. in clothing & textiles/business
from the University of Akron. Rita, her husband, Ron, and their
four children lived for many years in the Desert Southwest where
she was a clothing designer and custom seamstress. In the late 1980s,
the family relocated to a small farm in rural southern Ohio. It
was the perfect place to raise a family, but there was not much
demand for a custom dressmaker. In 1992 a wonderful opportunity
presented itself and Rita bought a small quilt shop. She had discovered
the career of her dreams! All of the quilts shown in this book evolved
from the many Mystery Classes Rita has taught over the years. When
designing the pattern for a Mystery Class, the quilt needs to be
completed in one afternoon and be easy for quilters of any skill
level. The quilt patterns contained in this book are from the Sunday
Mystery Classes at Creations SewClever. We hope you'll reach a solution
that delights you!
Today Creations SewClever is a busy quilt shop with a fabulous,
friendly, funny staff of over 20 people. If you ever find yourself
in southern Ohio, be sure to stop by the old funeral home now known
as Creations SewClever. Rita and her friendly staff are dying to
show you around!
