Meet your Quilter!
2001 Stephanie McCall decided not to be an Opera Singer in NYC, but to settle down to have a family in her beloved Central New York. There are just so many diapers one can change or dishes to wash so she picked up quilting from her Mother in Law, Phyllis. By 2006 she began her journey to fill homes and businesses with custom, high quality quilts and Art pieces. Quilts By Commission was created and developed so that she could be an active parent at home and have an independent customer centered quilt business, so she could make quilts all day!
