Prairie Grove Peddlers

Hi, my name is Cheryl Haynes and I am the owner and designer of The Prairie Grove Peddler pattern company.  I am a wife, married 33 years, a mother of 3 great kids, and a grandmother or "Nana" to six.

I have always had an interest in art and crafts.  I won lots of awards in Junior High and High School for artwork ranging from pastels to oil paintings.  I designed and made Barbie doll clothes as a young girl.  I could never seem to follow a pattern very well so I made up my own patterns.  I designed quilts from my own patterns as a teenager.  Both of my grandmothers were quilters and made beautiful quilts that I grew up sleeping under.

When my husband and I were dating, I would sit on the floor of his apartment and lay out quilt blocks to sew, usually pinning them to the shag carpet (oops, my age is showing)!  I even had a sewing machine with me most of the time.  I think everyone I know got a quilt from me at some point, whether they liked it or not!  I have always loved playing with colors and fabric.  I made both of my sisters a hand-quilted quilt for Christmas one year.
