November 18, 2020: My Quilting Journey, Veruschka Zarate

Veruschka Zarate of Pride & Joy Quilting, began her quilting journey in 2016, shortly after having her two little boys.  After leaving a professional career in University Counseling & Psychology, she decided to dedicate herself to the education and raising of her two precious boys.  Along the way, she developed a love of quilting and later a passion for foundation paper piecing.

Wanting to integrate her calling to encourage and empower others, she integrated her background in psychology with quilting by developing a series of pattern books entitled “Em•Pow•HER•Ment: a Quilting Journey of Women who changed the world.”  Veruschka is hoping to inspire girls and women of all ages through Foundation Paper Piecing.
