Rita is a happily retired quilt shop owner, author, pattern designer, demonstrator, teacher, and Creative Grids rulers designer. For 28 years she was owner of Creations SewClever Quilt Shop located in an historic old funeral home in Chillicothe, Ohio. Of all her professional skills, teaching has always been closest to her heart. Although she is excited to be free of the day-to-day stress of being a business owner, keeping in touch with other quilters through teaching keeps her smiling! Her time spent with students and campers at Quilt Camp is always a highlight of her year!!
