Allison Rainboth was born in Southern California and lived there until 1992, when she moved with her husband to Wisconsin. She learned to sew from the friendly ladies at the local Singer store when she was 10. After spending a week with them while her brother and mom went to day camp, Allison had sewn a gym bag, a doll blanket, and a pair of drawstring pants. She was hooked. Allison is now the owner of Sisters Choice Quilting Service in Berlin, WI. An AQS Certified Appraiser, Allison is well-versed in quilt and textile history. Her lectures are fun, eye-opening, and chock full of information. See more at allisonrainboth.com.
