Introducing our Social Media Manager, Teresa

Teresa first fell in love with quilting when she made one in a girls' church group under the guidance of an experienced quilter. The quilt made from 4x4 inch solid red, red gingham and small strawberry print blocks. It is much loved and starting to fall apart. Teresa loves the old traditional patterns and colors. She has tried a lot of ... More

The House of Stuart – Part 4, God Must Love The Spartans

There are many things I consider my favorite things: Jesus, my family & friends, my cats Anya and Nala, Celine Dion, football, mac & cheese etc. You know, the normal things. But there something special about one of the items in the list above…. More

The House of Stuart – Part 3, The Family Room

When I was about three and a half years old, I was adopted from Athens, Greece. I went from an orphan to having parents, siblings and a large extended family. I have no memory of my time in Greece, so for me, it is as if I have always been a part of the good ol’ Red, White, & Blue. But every once in a while, something will come up that will remind me that I indeed do not share any genetics with the rest of my family. More

The House of Stuart – Part 2, New Kid on the Block

When I signed for Stuart, one of the first items that needed to be upgraded were the water lines. As I have learned from HGTV’s Property Brothers, galvanized pipes are frowned upon because of their deteriorating nature (the iron pipes rust, clog the lines). Most contractors and plumbers will say that “it is not a matter of if, but when” they need to be replaced... More

The House of Stuart – Part 1, The Introduction

When the OnPoint team came up with the idea of writing about our favorite crafts, hobbies and other artistic creativities, I wasn’t sure what niche I was going to cover. I’m not a painter, quilter, or jewelry maker by love or trait. But right around the time we were discussing this idea, I was signing on the dotted line to become a first time homeowner. And... More

I’m not in Greece anymore.

Growing up in a creative family, arts, crafts & projects were a part of my everyday life. But my love of the arts didn’t come from paint brush or fabrics, but through the lens of a camera. I never had the creative bug for drawing or painting. But from an early age, I did with the video camera. When watching a movie or TV ... More

Love for color and type can take you places.

I have been a crafter and an artist since I was very young. Starting with knitting and crochet I moved onto drawing, painting and even miniature dollhouse furnishings. Name a craft and I've probably tried it. As an adult my favorite artistic endeavors are quilting, jewelry making, (specifically chainmaille pieces) and watercolor ... More

It’s me! Gina!

I have been crafting since I was a little kid. I get a tremendous pleasure playing with the colors and textures each different product category and technique produce. I can’t draw a stick figure but crafting allows me to make things that are pretty. I have knitted for so long I don’t remember who taught me. As far as quilting, ... More

Hi, my name is Nancy.

I started sewing at a very young age, making clothes for my dolls and later for myself. I come from a large family of 10 kids, so the only way to get a new outfit was to make it yourself. Technically, I made my first quilt when I was about 11 years old. We had just moved to a farm in Gregory, Michigan from the Detroit area. My Mother ... More
