Let Me Introduce Myself...

Since it seems that I'm not very good at keeping this part of my blog up to date, I have decided to make this an introduction about me.


My name is Cindy Myers.  I am a quilting instructor, quilting lecturer, quilt show vendor under the name, A Couple of Old Broads and I run an Adult Care Facility, the Myers Home, with my husband, where I care for developmentally disabled men.  

I live in Ontario, California, not Canada.  I add this especially when I'm at a quilt show because people think I have come a long way to be at whatever quilt show I am at.  And yes, I live 10 minutes away from where Road to California is held.  

I am a quilting instructor.  I love teaching my students and watching the light of discovery alight in their eyes when the amazing things start coming together.  Some of the classes I teach are my Fun Fabulous Fabric Ornaments.  Starting with one of Paula Nadelstern's beautiful medallion panels, I show my students how to make a flat piece of fabric fit smoothly around a round Styrofoam ball and then have them embellishing it to their hearts content.  

Another class that I teach is One Block Wonder with Panels quilts.  We start with a set of 7 fabric panels, cut 6 of the panels up into triangles, sew the triangles into half hexies, then start arranging the half hexies around the 7th panel that will be the center of our design.  

I am a former Quiltworx Instructor and teach a few of Judy Niemeyer's patterns and her way of paper piecing.  

As the owner of A Couple of Old Broads, A Traveling Quilt Shoppe, I don't have a brick and mortar store, I do quilt shows, in Arizona, California and Nevada.  I specialize in fabric panels and their coordinating fabrics, quilt themed gifts and the ever favorite sewing themed clocks.  I also have an online store,, that I try to keep up. So, if you see me at one of the shows that I do and you went home and didn't buy that special something you can always see if it is in my store or contact me and I will see if I will have it or I can maybe order it if I don't.  

On the other pages you will find my lecture and workshop information.  My teaching and vending schedule. The One Block Wonder with Panels page has the current sets that I have available for my workshop.  The Fun Fabulous Fabric Ornaments page has the current medallion panels that are available for the kits in class.  Another page has some of my students work and last but not least is a page with some of my quilts.  

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and take a look.
