Jerry Granata is a retired US Navy musician living in Palm Springs, California who raised the anchor and sailed away on a thrilling journey through the world of quilting. As a 5-year old child growing up in Palos Heights, Illinois, Jerry would sit next to his sister as she worked at her sewing machine, drawn by the sound of the machine and the enticing fabrics she’d use. “When she asked if I would like to try, I jumped at the opportunity and I’ve been sewing ever since,” he recalled.
