About Us

We are Terri Whisler and Jamie Mikkleson, Mother and Daughter and partners in Heartland Quilting
and Stitching, LLC. Terri currently owns and operates an aviation company with her husband, where she
does the company books and rebuilds fabric airplanes. Jamie is a civil engineer with the Nebraska
Department of Transportation in the Utility Section, where she handles the relocation of all utilities prior
to any road construction in the State of Nebraska. Terri and Jamie are self-taught quilters. Terri taught
herself to cross-stitch in her early childhood and passed her love and knowledge of cross-stitching on to
Jamie. Together they have a “FlossTube” channel on YouTube called The Cornhusker State Stitchers,
where they share their progress on the projects they’re currently working on and have always dreamed
about having a business where they can spread their love of quilting and cross-stitch; thus Heartland
Quilting and Stitching was born, named for the love of their home state, Nebraska, located in the
heartland of the USA, and the love for their craft.
