Rebecca Chester started collecting quilt fabrics at age fifteen. One day she started cutting up the fabrics and sewing them back together. She fell in love with the process and has been quilting ever since. She has two culinary degrees and has worked in construction, customer service, foodservice, and management. No matter what jobs she held, she continued piecing and quilting on her domestic sewing machine. Her mother, Agnes, and her Nana, Maria, decided it was time they bought a long arm. They named the Gamill Vision 2 after Rebecca’s great grandmother, Maria Juana Villa-Ferrer, or Mary Jane as they now call her.
After consulting with her husband and daughter, she decided to work on longarm quilting full time. They named the company Dixie Longarm Quilting after a much loved childhood pet. She was a sheltie-shepard that taught Rebecca a lot about devotion, patience and that some things are worth fighting for. Rebecca currently lives in Phenix City, Alabama.
