Howdy! Howdy! This is Mathew Boudreaux (AKA Mister Domestic), presently residing in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, our 3-year-old daughter Helena, and two cats Jordan & Camden. I am originally from Houston, TX and have managed to live all over the country during my adult life, but finally settled down and call Camas, Washington home. During the day, I work in the pharmaceutical industry specializing in oncology, but am an artist by heart and have jokingly referred to myself as an artistic gypsy flowing from theater to modeling to photography to sewing.

I had learned to sew as a kid, but never really got into it until we had our daughter. I thought it would be a great way to connect with her if I could make her cool clothes. Almost 40, I felt that my taste-level had arrived and that I could make some pretty neat-o digs, if only I could figure out how to do it. Before Helena could even crawl, my husband bought me a couple sewing classes at Modern Domestic in Portland, which was the perfect jumpstart that I needed because I haven’t stopped since.

Jason Blackmore - is a professional longarm quilter with a background in drafting & design. He started quilting in 2014 after a layoff due to a recession. He specializes in computerized quilting  and enjoys experimenting with rulers which allows him to use his skills in a whole new way.

 Kyra RepsIn 2017, Kyra discovered the APLIQUICK method for needle turned applique and she started making DOTS…. LOT’s and LOT’s of DOTS!  She then started designing mandalas while using these dots. Kyra now teaches her Dot mandala designs using the APLIQUICK method and teaches the design process of making mandalas.  In addition to this, she teaches Dot painting and showcases how you can create a beautiful original mandala with DOTS.   When Kyra is not quilting, creating, or dotting, she spends her time being a wife and a mother to her 5 children.  She also enjoys spending time in her vast flower gardens which span across her 8-acre property.
