About Tina

What can we do to make Martingale customers happy? This is a delightful question Tina asks herself daily as Martingale’s Audience Development Manager, a job that allows her to focus on ShopMartingale.com, the Stitch This! blog, and the quilters, knitters, and crocheters who spend time there. Prior to joining the marketing team in 2011, Tina spent 18 years in Martingale’s editorial department, where she started as a proofreader and eventually wound up as Managing Editor. After stitching an apron in home-ec in seventh grade--an apron she still uses--Tina was making clothes for herself by the time she was in college. Her first quilt was measured and cut without rulers, stiffly overfilled with batting, and backed with polyester tablecloths. She’s gotten better at quiltmaking but so far hasn’t managed to keep a single one she’s made--they’ve all been given away as gifts. Tina lives with her husband and two sons, boys who love to visit the Martingale photo studio, answer the Quirky Question, and design quilts in crayon. When she’s not spending time with family, Tina’s reading a book, planning a trip, or obsessing about her garden.
