Kristina began quilting with her grandmother in the 1990’s. Her love of quilting continued to grow as she shared it with others in various states and countries. She pieced and quilted on her domestic machine until being introduced to longarm quilting in 2014. She began her longarm quilting experience on an HQ Avanté® with Pro-Stitcher®. After touching the Handi Quilter machine for the first time, she was hooked and currently quilts on her HQ Forte® with Pro-Stitcher.

She was selected to be a member of the Handi Quilter Quilt Your Desire Inspiration Squad in 2017 and has been featured in magazines, show programs, and on the Handi Quilter truck. Kristina is also a member of many local quilt guilds and enjoys continually learning and improving her skills.

She enjoys all types of longarm quilting including rulers, Pro-Stitcher, free-motion (she quilts for hire, for pleasure, and is working to complete 50 of her grandmother’s quilt tops). She loves to think outside of the box and to push herself to try new things
