Kim learned how to sew at an early age, making her own clothes way before #memade was popular. During her senior year of high school, she found a picture of a log cabin quilt, got out some graph paper, and drafted her first quilt. It took her 5 years to finish that quilt, but a curiosity of the craft blossomed into a passion.
In 2003, Kim started quilting on her home machine. From there, she graduated to quilting on a longarm in 2007. She became a professional longarm quilter in 2016, using her HQ Forte® with Pro-Stitcher® for everything from simple edge to edge designs to custom quilts.
Kim helped on the development team for PS Designer and PS Catalog, and enjoys designing, editing and teaching all about this great software for quilters. Kim loves the process of choosing or creating designs to complement and highlight her piecing.
Over the years, Kim evolved from a very traditional quilter to a more modern quilter. She began teaching classes in 2007, and loves passing on her passion and knowledge about all aspects of quilting to her students. Kim is the mother of two teenagers and lives in Utah, where she loves to hike with her dog in the beautiful mountains in the summer, and stay inside and quilt the rest of the year.
