About Us


Jake & Ginny Clausen are the owners of Material Obsession and Ginny Clausen Studio. After working for years in the corporate world, Ginny needed a change of pace. She’d been sewing clothes and crocheting since she was in the 2nd grade, thanks to the wonderful instruction from her mother and grandmother. So, when she was introduced to a Gammill longarm quilter she knew that this was the direction her life would take.

Jake and Ginny had dreamed of moving to Lake Havasu City and in 2007 they turned their dream into reality.  Ginny began offering professional quilting services through Ginny Clausen Studio. Ten years later, she decided to expand and open a quilting store (with Jake's blessing)  called,  Material Obsession.

Ginny and her husband live in the dream home he built, with a crazy cat named Stitch and a rescue dog named Mojave. When she isn’t working at Material Obsession or doing longarm quilting, Ginny enjoys reading, gardening, spending time on Lake Havasu and kicking up the sand with her ATV. Ginny also belongs to numerous quilting associations and guilds, and is a Lake Havasu - Master Gardner.
