Kelly took her first sewing class at age 12 at the Singer Sewing Center. All through high school she made her own clothes and learned the love of creating with your own hands. Pregnant with her first child, 44 years ago, she saw a picture on the cover of a magazine of a quilt and decided she wanted to learn how to quilt. Mostly self-taught, these were the days before good books, patterns, rotary cutters, and great fabrics.
Once the children were gone and after a career in Real Estate, she returned full time to quilting, lecturing, and teaching classes. She likes everything from antique quilts to modern quilts.
Kelly and her husband Bob live in Downingtown where they raised 4 children and like to spend time enjoying their 9 grandchildren.
