    Interview with Bernie Tobisch

    Bernie Tobisch was born in Germany and moved to Canada as a young boy. He grew up in Saskatchewan and moved to Alberta in his early twenties, where he began his career as a sewing machine technician with Singer. He became a dealer after a few years and continued to service machines. In the late 1980s, he moved to the Vancouver region, opened up shop, and has been there since. He has a daughter, Bonnie and son, Gord. He also has one grandson, Dylan, whom he thinks would make a great technician! Bernie is happily married to his wife Shelley. They met in the sewing machine business and have worked together for the last twenty years teaching classes on Precision Piecing, machine quilting, and getting to know your sewing machine. He also still services sewing machines. Bernie enjoys sailing and fishing and if he ever retires, would love to sail off into the sunset!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2dPJqY7vHE&t=19shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pH27GOsVBAY&t=2s

    Interview with Mary Hertel

    Interview with Mary Hertel

    You can call me by my nickname “Marney”, but my real name is Mary Hertel.  I design paper pieced patterns.  I am an art instructor, pattern designer, mother and friend. You can find me in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, but I do not have a “brick and mortar” shop. I sell on-line and at Quilt Shows around my area.  You may also find some of my patterns at your local quilt shop.  I’ve had a super creative drive all of my life.  My designs are fueled by my past.  Growing up in a rural farm community gave me a love for nature and animals, as you will see from my designs.  My great love for children’s artwork is also evident in my wonky animals…which no doubt comes from teaching children’s art for thirty-five years.  My motto:  “A Day Can’t Go By Without Creating Something…”

    Mary Cannizzaro and Jen Cannizzaro are mother and daughter, friends and business partners. They are two of the most energetic people you will ever meet.Mary remembers the sewing machine on the dining room table of her childhood home, moved only on Sunday’s to make room for the family’s dinner. Mary learned how to sew at an early age and began quilting in the early 1990s, when her hometown asked for volunteers to make blocks for a raffle quilt. She is an award-winning quilter who has shown her quilts in international shows.Jen is a software trainer by day, quilter by night and weekend. Quilting fell into her lap accidentally in the early 2000s, when she took the place of one of Mary’s friends who was unable to attend classes she had signed up for. Her first quilt, Self-Portrait of Jen as a Redhead, finished at 7” square and became their company logo years later.In 2014, the duo opened Cannizzaro Creations, a quilting studio in Rockland, Massachusetts.  They began longarm quilting for many quilters in the area, with Mary traveling to Massachusetts a few times a month to quilt. They have been commissioned to created dozens of quilts for fans of their work.
