She uses her Gammill Vision 30-12 for hand driven machine quilting. She is a certified machine quilter with training from Village Dry Goods and Rocky Mountain Electric Quilters.

Our Building and Family Businesses
Aleena and her husband Sam started building The Winward Building in 2018 and will complete it in 2019. In addition to the Quilting Bee in Wellsville, the building will house other family run businesses. Sam will operate his Financial Services Office out of the main level. The Winward kids and other local teenagers will run a small ice cream shop, The Wellsville Cone, out of a cubby on the main level where locals can come and enjoy famous Aggie Ice Cream and Creamies. The second story is the Legacy Loft Reception Center where people can rent space to hold wedding receptions, family parties, business meetings, recitals, or performances. The Winwards love living and working in Wellsville.
