Superior Spotlight: Sandi Nehlsen-Cannarella

Posted: 12 May 2015 at 6 a.m.

Sandi Nehsen

Sandi’s first Girl Scout badge was for sewing.  After an exciting career in medicine, with a focus on transplants and immunology, Sandi retired at age 69. Her husband surprised her with a beautiful 500-square foot studio above her garage.  She then joined her local Busy Bears Quilt Guild, produced their annual quilt show for three years and has spent time teaching quilting and applique in local shops.

Come Walk Through My Garden

Sandi loves to follow the work of quilt artists and after reading many books and receiving a Superior Threads starter pack, she was hooked.  Sandi says, “I have consistently worked with Superior Threads and joined their thread clubs.  I discovered that Bottom Line was fabulous for my early work in applique, but soon found Kimono Silk through their Thread Sampler Club that has changed my life!”


What has she done with the 80+ quilts that she’s made in the last 4 years?  Given them as gifts, sold them at quilt shows, and donated them to charity auctions.  Thank you Sandi for sharing your beautiful work with us!
