Hi, I'm Clara, after over 35 years at my job I decided to retire, however retirement didn't last long. As a quilter I couldn't believe my luck when Laura asked me to work at a dream job! I'm now working part time at Creative Passions Quilt Shop and loving it! Born and raised in Tawas City, MI I married my wonderful husband when he moved from California to Michigan. We have a daughter & son, son in law and two granddaughters, the oldest, now 16, was 11 when she was on Master Chef Jr. and at 13 years she started her own business and we appeared on Bake it Like Buddy in 2018 together. Our youngest granddaughter at 12 loves sports, Lego's, painting and crafting and sells her stuff like a true entrepreneur. Work took the family from Tawas City in the late 70's to Saginaw and then we moved to Chesaning in 2000. I am also very active in Piecemakers Quilt Guild with well over 100 members from all over the Tri-Cities. Can you imagine being a quilter and having access to beautiful fabric the whole time you're working! Please come in to the Quilt Shop and say hello.
