Kellie Burton was born and grew up in the Northern Minnesota town of Brainerd. Raised in and around the sewing industry, Kellie spent many hours in her grandmother’s fabric and quilting store, now owned by her mother. Kellie and many of her family members find quilting and sewing to extend beyond a hobby to an integral part of life. Kellie has been quilting for 18 years and is very excited to teach others the fine art of longarm quilting.
Kellie is very proficient with the HQ Fusion® and the HQ Avanté®. She prides herself on not only her knowledge of Handi Quilter’s superior machines
and their unparalleled program operation, but also her love of free motion quilting. Her desire is to create one of a kind pieces that her customers can proudly hand down for generations to come.
Kellie resides in the small Minnesota community of New Prague with her partner Paul and their combined 4 children and 2 dogs. Even with her busy schedule as a mother of a young family, Kellie finds me to enjoy downhill skiing and horseback riding. Kellie is of the belief that “if life is this busy, it is imperative that one must enjoy it!”
