CRAFTSY Fun and some miscellaneous stuff….

So, who’s the gal on the phone and who is she talking to? Just wondering…..

I’ve been hard at work (really, it is play) preparing for my next Craftsy class which will be videotaped here in my studio in less than two weeks! I can’t wait to share more about it with you. But in the meantime, I thought it would be fun to post a few miscellaneous things a that I’ve been wanting to share for awhile now.

It is always a thrill for me to meet students of my first Craftsy class, Magical Jelly Roll Quilts, when I’m traveling. This past summer I met this sweet gal when she drove with a friend (from NY or NJ I think; I was so honored!) to meet me and hear me give the Friday night presentation at the Vermont Quilt Festival! I have egg all over my face that I can’t remember her name. So if you are her or you know her, would you please leave a comment and let me know?

I’d like to give a big shout-out to super-sweet, Wendy Hyre who I’ve known from previous classes. I met her again last summer in Vermont and she had brought her finished quilt to share. The colors are GORGEOUS! (Hi, Wendy!)

I can’t mention the VQF without introducing you to my dear friend, Betty Jordt. Betty and I met many years ago (was it at the AQS Quilt Show in Paducah, Betty?) She and I have kept in close touch many times since then. In fact, without her help I wouldn’t have been able to get all those quilts, books and rulers up to Vermont this past June!

If you’ve seen my Craftsy class or taken a class with me in person, you know I am a HUGE fan of this nifty invention, The Strip Stick. Well, I had the chance to meet the talented and amazing lady and her husband who invented it when I was in Texas a few months ago. Everyone, I’d like you to meet Ann Babb.

For all you Craftsy students, I’d like you to meet someone special I met at a book signing event in Florida recently. You’ll recognize her from the class platform as ScrappyDebbie. She is a delight! So next time you’re on the platform, be sure and say hello….

 At Quilt Market in Houston last month I had the fun of meeting some of the Craftsy folks in their booth. What a talented, awesome bunch of people! I think it would be a blast to work for that company….

 So, what are you all up to? Sewing gifts for the holidays? Still eating turkey leftovers? Watching Craftsy classes? Do tell!

  1. Feverishly sewing for the holidays! Making a chain saw lap quilt and matching pillow for a good friend.
    Table runners, mini quilts…
    Angel outfits for the church pageant…
    Spiderman pillowcases…
    I may not be finished until Easter!
    I love Wendy Hyre’s quilt. Beautiful colors!
    Can’t wait for the new Craftsy class, Kimberly.
    I guess we know what you’ll be doing for the next few weeks!

  2. Hello Kimberly,
    I am so glad that you will be giving another class on Craftsy. This was my hope. Could you please tell me when it will be available? I can’t wait ….thanks. I have three of your books and love them all. Great job, please continue.
    Greetings from overseas, I read you lived there too.
    Where did you buy nice fabrics in Germany to quilt?

    • Hi Karine –

      Thank you for your sweet comment. I’m happy to say that my new Craftsy class should be launching in a couple of weeks (if not sooner!) I’m sorry to say that I found very few quilting fabrics while we lived in Germany. But a quick trip over the border to the Netherlands, and I found quite a few nice quilt shops in which to buy fabric!
      Good luck!
