Kim began sewing at a very young age while sitting on her grandmother’s lap and pushing the pedal of the treadle machine. In high school, she took every sewing/designer sewing class her schedule would allow, and was making three piece suits for her eventual husband in the 12th grade. Her passion grew into sewing everything she wore.
In 1994, Kim made her first quilt when she joined the local guild of Leesville, LA. The guild invited a teacher who had just published a foundation paper piecing book and demonstrated the steps using this new technique. Totally hooked, she loves this method to make pillows to king size quilts and everything in between.
Her husband served 27 years in the service, so Kim has been blessed meeting and learning from so many quilters all over the country. Her fondest memories are piecing quilt blocks around the dining room table with new military wives in a brand new town.
After her husband’s retirement in 2009, they moved back to their roots of PA and live in Mount Joy.
