Donna

Donna Mayo – Orleans, MA (native)

I have worked for Murray’s for 37 years. I started sewing when I was in high school, making clothing. Over the years I have done prom and christening gowns, along with figure skating costumes. I have gotten into quilting and love putting colors together. I also like to find interesting patterns and change them into my own. I own several Janome machines, but my primary machine is the Janome 11000.

Maureen (Mo) Fettig – Brewster

Has worked at Murray’s for 4 1/2 years. My mother taught me to sew and gave me my first sewing machine as a college graduation gift. I continued that tradition, buying a new one from Murray’s for my daughter at her graduation. By then, my machine had become problematic, and hers was a dream to use. So I treated myself to a new Janome 2010. I started to enjoy sewing so much again, that 4 months later I applied at Murray’s.

Betty Simpson – Eastham

I have worked at Murray’s for the past 10 years. I am a hand quilter and have taught quilting classes here at the store. I have designed some of my own quilts. One is my Cape Cod Quilt. I have enjoyed years here at Murray’s. Helping our customers choose their fabrics for their projects makes my day. Our loyal, long-time, friendly customers are wonderful to serve. I sew every chance I get. I am mostly a quilter. When my children were young I did sew some of their clothing. I piece quilts during the day and hand quilt in the evening. I own a Janome 6600 and a Janome 3160. I love the 6600 with the Accufeed feet. I do all my piecing on this machine. The 3160 is a lightweight machine and is wonderful for small projects, traveling, and classes. Patterns are available for sale by contacting me at simpson-kieth@comcast.net
