RGA Design LLC was established in 2006 by Renae Allen. She launched her new Skillbuilder machine quilting products at International Spring Quilt Market in 2007 and continues to develop new products for quilters. Renae started sewing in elementary school. She sewed clothing and other projects for many years before discovering quilting. She began piecing and machine quilting in 1999 to help her sister, Janet Selck, in the Scraps of Time quilt design business. She stopped counting after quilting over 150 projects on her home machine. It was not long until Renae was asked to teach machine quilting classes. As a home economics graduate from Brigham Young University, teaching others came naturally. Her business idea for Skillbuilder Companion and Skillbuilder practice panels was her solution to a problem she encountered while teaching classes. She believes quilters need a good resource for a lot of practice before they have the skill and the confidence to quilt a “real” project and be pleased with the result. Renae lives in Brigham City, Utah with her husband, Andy Allen. They are the parents of five children and grandparents to eleven grandchildren.
