Our Team

While they assist customers with sales, we refer to them as Design Consultants, since they do so much more than just sell fabric or machines. Come in and let us help you think through your project, offer ideas or suggestions, and lead you to the perfect materials.

Here’s who you may bump into when you visit Stitching on State:

Terri Linder

Terri is our Store Manager, Educator, and Design Consultant. Terri has a formal background in art and is a marvel with colors. Nothing makes Terri more happy than helping people design and plan their projects or teaching them the skills they need to be successful at quilting.

Jann Bray

Design Consultant, Software Educator, and embroidery expert, Jann began quilting over 30 years ago when a group of friends decided to take a class together.
