About this Site

Welcome to the Quilting Gallery. I’m pleased you dropped by for a visit. I’m Michele Foster (aka Mishka), founder and developer of this site.

Michele Foster, aka Mishka

I started this site back in December 2007 as a way to combine my passion for quilting and my work life as a freelance web developer. Building client sites for 10+ years, I wanted a site of my own to “practice what I preached” to my clients. Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would become what it has today, 5 years later.

A Little About Me

I made my first quilt around 1994 at a class in Aurora, Ontario. Sadly, the store no longer exists. It was a quillow, which I gave to my parents for Christmas, or to my mom for Mother’s Day. I sure wish I knew about labelling quilts back then, as I’ve forgotten the exact details. I made a few other quilts on my own after that first class.

In 1998, I started my own business, WizarDev – Web Development Solutions and took a long hiatus from quilting. In the Spring of 2002, I moved to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada’s gorgeous Capital.
