Quinton began by teaching himself, through trial and error, how to make things.  At a rate belying his talent and imagination, he saw his first creations within hours of setting up his new “toy” -perfect potholders- an event that sparked the journey of his life’s vocation.  Day after day he would feed his newfound passion and sit at his Singer sewing machine and recreate garments that he had studied.  Without any patterns or formal education in design, he worked at the concept until he got it right.
