April Educator of the Month – Kate Quinn

Congratulations to Kate Quinn
Our Sew Steady Featured Educator for April


“My fascination with quilting began when I received a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt as a wedding present in 1991. The gift of a second scrappy quilt further solidified my love of fabrics and colors. I made my first quilt to celebrate the birth of my first child around 1993. I had loved quilting ever since. I love all styles and types of quilts from art to modern, from traditional pieced to applique. I also love how quilting is a connection through the ages and across generations.
I love sharing my passion for quilting and art, passing on a centuries old tradition, and creating beautiful items of comfort.  Let’s start FabriKating your next quilt!” – Kate

What some students have to say about Kate:

“This was my first time meeting Kate ( though virtually). Not everyone has the gift of being able to teach, Kate has it. I look forward to further my education signing up for more classes. I feel more confident in trying rulers and knowing the right tools to use.” Inde

“Kate is so calm and makes everything look easy enough that I feel like I can do this. I learn something new each time I watch this video or others that she has on social media.” cl

“Kate couldn’t be more wonderful! As a life-long educator, I recognize great teaching and that is Kate in a nutshell. She has an easy way about her, shares tips and tricks, and her pace is just right. Not only that, but she is willing to answer questions outside of class. First rate!” Jane Moore

  1. I absolutely loved the beginning ruler workshop with Kate Quinn. She was so enthusiastic, organized and shared so much information. She had sectioned off her sewing fabric with chalk for the various ruler demonstrations. I was taking notes so as to not miss anything and found myself purchasing a number of items that she mentioned that will be so handy to have on hand.
