Cindy Haddick's Biography
Cindy started sewing when she was 9. She remembers taking a sewing class in summer school - back when summer school was for fun. She made a dress in that class & wore it for school picture that fall. Like many of us, she made all doll clothes & she continued with sewing all through high school. She modified the design & made her wedding dress & hand beaded all the lace.
While living in Georgia, after her children were born, she wanted a way to have an income & be a stay home mom. She started a custom children’s clothing business. Her clothing was sold at craft shows throughout Georgia & Minnesota. Just prior to moving to Utah in 199, Cindy was accepted into one of the most prestigious shows in Georgia - the Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain. This is a jurried show & very difficult to get into. She was accepted on her 1st application. The sad part is, she moved to Utah 3 weeks before the show was scheduled! Cindy kept up her sewing, but not the children’s clothing business.
In July 2013, her mother, who was her inspiration & teacher (she worked for MN Fabrics - later Hancock Fabrics) passed away. She was a quilter. Cindy wanted a way to “stay close” to her mom, so she decided to teach heself to quilt. Her 1st quilt was a large Bargello, then a couple simple quilts, One Block Wonders, and finally in the fall of 2014, she found Judy Niemeyer designs. She took a class & knew after just the 1st class, that this was to be her passion ! She loves the amount of detail that you can get with a JN design, through the foundation paper piecing, nice sharp point, curved piecing made easy - all that. They look much harder than they really are. She’s been to Montana 5 times in less than 2 years for training & is a Certified Instructor Judy Niemeyer She loves what she does & is so excited to share her passion with others!!
