Meet Sarah Vedeler, the creator of the fabulous 2012 Sedona Star BOM. Sarah learned to sew at about age 6, on her Mum's 1964 Bernina Record. Mainly making clothes for herself and others, she also dabbled in home decor projects. During her college years, while earning a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Brighton, England, Sarah admits to not having much time for sewing.
After a brief career in England as a Software Engineer, Sarah move the the United States in 1998 and continued to work as a Software Engineer and Project Manager.
With the birth of her first daughter, Sarah became a stay-at-home Mom and rediscovered her love of sewing, quilting and embroidery. Not long after, she learned digitizing and put all of her software experience to good use in creating her own embroidery designs. Fueled by a 2nd place win in the Machine Embroidery category of the Arizona Quilters Guild, Sarah embarked on creating larger and more elaborate embroidered applique quilts.
2008 brought some changes for Sarah and her two daughters, as she became a single mom. Regrouping in early 2009, Sarah got in touch with her purpose in life - to create beauty, inspiration and infinite creative joy - and decided to channel her energy into doing what she loves, making quilts and spending time with her daughters (the inspiration behind the quilts). Sarah brings a refreshing perspective to quilting with her unique style, and loves to share her talents with quilters all over the world when she teaches.
