Kristie is a quilt teacher certified in teaching the Scrappy Appliqué technique developed by Shannon Brinkley. Her main goal in sharing her love of quilting with others is to help them feel confident and comfortable to do anything with the skills they currently have. She will be sharing the Scrappy Appliqué method as well as a trunk show to inspire your members to create their own projects.
Kristie has been using all types of needles and thread in some way ever since she was eight years old. She loves working with her hands which led her to sewing clothes for herself, embroidery, cross stitch, and crochet. When she was in her thirties, she started knitting professionally for knitwear designers which led to teaching knitting to elementary kids in an after school program. In her forties, she resumed her love of sewing and started quilting after a fateful trip to visit her sister-in-law. Standing in her quilt studio sparked something inside of Kristie and she’s never looked back. Now she’s lucky enough to be a quilt instructor and Certified Teacher for each Scrappy Appliqué™ as well as Color Confidence for Quilters™. She loves teaching at quilting guilds, quilt shops, and to individuals looking to learn new and unique techniques.
