Kim is helped in her quilt studio by her purry assistants, Teeka, Victor, and Salem who are always eager to lend a paw or two. When not quilting, Kim can be found binge watching shows on Netflix (the scarier, the better!), creating in her studio or filming videos with her hubby, Gary.

Kim doesn’t believe in the quilt police but does believe that quilting is more than stitching an accurate 1⁄4” seam (if it ain’t fun, it ain’t quilting 😉), that chocolate is an essential quilting tool, and that practice makes improvement…and you’re improving with each quilt you make!
