Our History

Teal Wave Underline

Surfing Mermaid Designs started on a small dining room table, cluttered with squares, from an idea handed down through multiple generations who all shared the love for quilting and fabrics. My story began many years ago with the love and passion for this art that was handed down over time, from literally “watching and doing” in order to learn and earn the gifts, skills, and desire for this craft from the greatest master quilters of all time - my grandmother, my mother, other family members, and mentors from the Amish community in Lancaster, PA. Spending time with master quilters allowed me to develop a kinship that takes time and patience, and a relationship that brings designs and patterns together.
