Renae Allen established RGA Design LLC in 2006 and introduced her new Skillbuilder machine quilting products at The International Spring Quilt Market in 2007. She continues to develop new products which include fabric, books, CDs and DVDs for quilters who are interested in improving their machine quilting skills. As a Home Economics graduate from Brigham Young University, teaching others came naturally. Her business evolved from her passion for teaching and her love of fabric, sewing and quilting.
Renae began sewing in elementary school and has been stitching one thing or another since that time. She resisted quilting for years, wondering why anyone would want to cut big pieces of fabric into little pieces, sew them back together again and still not have something lovely to wear. That all changed in 1999 and now she wholeheartedly endorses the art of piecing and quilting, especially machine quilting. Renae and her husband, Andy, live in Brigham City, Utah. They are the parents of five children and grandparents to thirteen grandchildren.
