About The InstructorLeave a Review
Kathy started sewing when she was 9 years old, while in a 4H group. She won several first place ribbons in the county and state fairs. In Jr high and high school home economics was one of her favorite classes.
While in her youth, she learned to quilt from her mother. She loved quilting by hand. Once married and having children, she was able to sew for her children, and has taught each of them to sew.
As much as she loved to hand quilt, she wanted to learn machine quilting, so she got books and spent hours learning to quilt.
She has worked at various quilt shops teaching classes (sewing knits, beginning quilting, machine quilting and ruler quilting) and selling sewing and long-arm machines. She has taught classes to individuals, including some of her granddaughters, and loves teaching others to sew. Her granddaughters love to join her in her sewing room.
In 2020 she saw that a local quilt shop was doing a virtual class of Ann Moore’s flower power quilt. She bought the rulers, tried them out and was hooked.
Kathy lives in a rural town in Central Utah, which allows her to cover northern Utah and southern Utah in about ½ days drive for teaching classes.
Why Westalee Design Templates: I have admired long-arm quilters who use rulers. I love that they can be combined with free motion.
Kathy is currently teaching at Quilt S’more in Gunnison, Utah. Kathy is also willing to travel to teach classes privately, In-Store, Guilds or Retreats.
