Sandy Heminger

Sandy Heminger’s mother started teaching her to sew when she was about 4.  Sandy sewed whenever she could get her mother to help, and then graduated to making many of her clothes all through school.  In the 1970s, for the country’s Bicentennial, Sandy decided to teach herself quilting.  When she moved back to Akron in the 1980s, Sandy opened a wonderful quilt shop, A Piece In Time, that grew from the original 500 square feet to over 5,000 square feet when sold in 2013. 

Sandy has had the great fortune to work with and for many of the country’s most famous quilters and authors, and is honored to have her quilts published in their books.  Sandy has authored many original patterns and has several books in various stages. 

Travel is a great release and Sandy loves to teach in quilt shops, workshops and seminars all over the country.  Today, Scrap Quilts are her favorite and she is very happy to say that she has never met a scrap quilt she didn’t like!  Well, not yet at least.
