Meet Gary and Cheryl



Meet Gary And Cheryl

These owners of Phillips Fiber Art are two hard working partners. Phillips Fiber Art has been Cheryl's full time job for over 20 years and Gary traded his 9-5 in about 13 years ago. Supported by friends and family, they have found success together.

Gary moved around quite a bit as a kid. He was born in Montana and graduated from high school in California, then spent a summer in Guam with his mom after high school. A graduate of Mesa College in automotive technology, Gary's worked on cars and other machines for many years. He's handy and always ready for a challenge.

Cheryl has always lived in Colorado, but in many different areas. She has a bachelors degree in Geology and is always seeing the patterns in geological formations. A few months after I was born, she gave up her career to stay at home with me and my sister. Having a knack for mathematics, quilt design was a natural progression for her. Finding ways to make extra money she turned her quilting hobby into a career.

Cheryl's first book "Quilts Without Corners" was first published in 1993 by a local Colorado company. She then wrote and self-published WedgeWorks, WedgeWorks II and many others. Gary and Cheryl have worked as a team to develop and manufacture an assortment of acrylic quilting tools.

God has blessed our family. I am so proud of my parents and honored to be their daughter.
