Welcome to Golden Needle Quilting! I’m Kimberly Burke, child of God, friend, wife, Momma, Grandma, dog lover and quilter. You’ll usually find me at home, in jeans and a t-shirt with some sort of quilty goodness in hand. I enjoy a hot cup of coffee, reading a good book, going for walks, spending time with friends & family, and of course quilting!
I started piecing in 1997 after a friend invited me to a quilt class. Piecing quickly filled every available moment. My 1st completed quilt was a Log Cabin which was quickly followed by two more for our kids. I’ve lost count of the number of quilts I’ve made in the last 25 years. Many were given to loved ones including new babies, those in need of encouragement and comfort during difficult times and our veterans. The rest are in our home; hanging on walls, draped on a ladder, folded on shelves, laying over the couch or covering one of the beds. Each one tells a story and like the photos scattered throughout they make our house a home.
In early 2006, after nearly a decade of taking my quilts to professional quilter’s in our area I started researching and eventually training and educating myself to begin a longarm quilting business. In October 2006 Golden Needle Quilting became a reality. I enjoy quilting for my wonderful clients and when time permits, myself. I never thought when I took that 1st quilt class that this is where I would end up, however quilting has brought me joy, sparked my creativity and blessed me with wonderful friendships over the past 25 years. I don’t know where I’d be without it.
Currently I’m quilting for clients, working on UFO’s and waiting for Tula Pink’s Neon & Neutral’s line to release so that I can start the next quilt I want to make for our guest room. I’m thrilled to be back to pre-COVID days, gathering with friends and loved ones, taking a quilt class occasionally and enjoying our local businesses. I’m happy to meet clients or welcome them to our home, but require that we reschedule if one of us is under the weather. In addition clients are welcome to drop off quilts on my porch by appointment if they prefer.
