Dalene McDonald learned to hand embroider before she could write. She used her grandma's treadle Singer to make her first scrap quilt at about the same time. She made many of her own clothes when she was in high school and college. Dalene returned to quilting in 2003 and purchased her first Viking sewing machine in 2006. She loves all kinds of sewing, quilting, machine and hand embroidery, and also offers longarm quilting services.
She is a member of the Walnut Valley Quilt Guild, the Pioneer Area Quilt Guild, the Newkirk Crazy Quilters, the Wheat Capital Quilt Society, Prairie Quilt Guild, and the American Sewing Guild - Wichita Chapter.
