Welcome! My name is Katherine (Katie) and I’m a independent designer, a lover of yarn and fabric, and a quilter. Constantly in the pursuit of making things pretty, I work on quilts, knitting, pattern design, and renovating my 150 year old farmhouse on a budget. I have a bachelor’s degree in apparel and textile design and I love the knitty gritty of making all the pieces of a design puzzle fit together. I’ve always been an “artsy person” and cannot remember a time in my life when I wasn’t in pursuit of something new to learn with my hands, whether it be painting, pottery, sewing, crocheting, or baking. I dabble in photography and there’s almost no hobby I won’t try once.
I’m married to my high school sweetheart of 10 years and we have two delightfully nutty critters, Cassian the dog and Jyn the cat. I’m a movie lover who can’t get enough Marvel and Star Wars and the Muppets, can quote most all of The Office by heart, and a pretty dang fine chef. You can usually find me sketching new quilts and daydreaming at my 9 to 5, or doing some house demo project. Thanks for checking out my little corner of the internet!
