  1. Didn’t see if this was posted or not – your dad was a auto painter – best in the Fox River Valley! Awesome dude.

  2. Well, I’m interested in the answer. Don’t think that I am right, but will say that he built cabinets. Congrats!

  3. I have no idea, but will guess that if your family is from WI, that he was a farmer. If I don’t guess, I can’t win, right??

  4. My guess he is a carpenter. Thanks for the chance to win and congratulations on getting into a great magazine.


  5. I need to change my answer … your dad “painted cars, he loved cars, he bought smashed up cars and lovingly brought them back to life. Your father loved what he did.”

  6. Lisa, Congrats on making the cover! Besides your Dad being your hero, did he work as a building contractor?

  7. Since you’re in Wisconsin maybe he owned a dairy farm and made cheese curds! That’s one of my favorite memories as a kid going on vacation to Wisconsin and getting a bag of cheese curds!

  8. Was your Dad a factory worker, maybe at one of the big auto mfg companies? Congrats on making it into the book.

  9. I never win anything. I would love to win but I could never guess what your dad did because I guessed everything already listed and you denied all of those. But what I do know is that he was a good dad because look at you ! your accomplishments show that he was loving , giving, and was a good example for you to follow. Your name on the front of a magazine ! not everyone can say that. Your fabrics, your patterns, your QUILTS ! Wow ! your many followers. Congratulations Lisa ! I appreciate that you want to share that will off of us ^;^. Pam, Dexer, MI.

  10. Your dad painted cars. I remember you telling the story when you spoke to our guild. It was before respirators were required. See….I was listening 😉

  11. I am going to guess that your Dad was a fisherman. I know…that is far fetched, but you do live in the lakes area.

  12. Lisa, I believe your dad was an auto body repairman and painted cars. I love that you are on the cover and that I can say you are the most unaffected personality I have had the pleasure of knowing. .

  13. I really don’t have a clue but a guess is an accountant. maybe? love your website and projects. Will look forward to the book! Thanks for sharing it. Helen

  14. Not that I know, and I am a very bad guesser so I could say a janitor – like my dad, or a lineman – like my husband.
    Congrats on the book – love to win

  15. Looks like several people knew he was a car painter. I’ll go along with that but I think he also loved and worked on motorcycles. Congrats on the magazine.

  16. First of all, congratulations on being on this great magazines cover!
    Second, only guessing. My hubs is from Wisc. where cheese & beer brewing was once huge. May I say in a broad guess that he may have worked in either of these industries? 🙂

  17. Congrats, fun to see your name in a cover and I bet you get a cool coffee mig with your block too! My dad was a civil servant but loved tinkering on his motorcycles and when younger raced flat track. Guys love their engines and cars….perhaps yours too?

  18. Lisa- your dad was a truck driver, a commercial fisherman on the side and sold cars in his spare time! How’s that for a guess? Congrats on making tthe book – you continue to be awesome! It was nice to see your booth busy in Houston.

  19. I;m going with restoring cars……that occupation like quilting requires great patience, skill and knowledge to create a true work of art. I know, my husband is restoring his 65 chevelle and I tell him all the time it is like building a quilt. Congrats on the magazine…I need to buy this magazine…only if I don’t win. HEHEHEHEHEH

    1. You are really correct too! He was the figure8 champion and won many races in a row one year …..do you know what figure 8 is? Where they can crash in the intersection!

  20. Many people from Little Chute have ancestors from Dutch origin. There names are sometimes corrupted. Probably yours is too. Nevertheless I think your father had no typical Dutch profession. My guess is pizza maker or airbrush painter of big trucks.
