Kimberly is a friend, wife, Momma, Grandma and child of God! She loves to read a good book, go for walks, spend time with friends and loved ones and……QUILT!
Self-employed since 1994, Kimberly has been surrounded with kids or quilts, quite often both for most of her adult life. Her childcare business allowed her to be a SAHM for their kids while still contributing financially to the family. In 2006, she switched gears opening Golden Needle Quilting which continues to satisfy her need for creativity and allows her the flexibility to spoil the grand-kids when the opportunity arises.
Kimberly didn’t grow up in a creative environment. No sewing machines were in sight but she was drawn to them. So much so that she babysat for countless hours in junior high to buy her 1st Featherweight. No one in her family had a clue what to do with it, but Kimberly had a sewing machine. Roughly two decades later, in 1997 a friend invited her to a quilt class. Kimberly was bitten with the quilt bug and has never looked back.
She’s made countless quilts in the last 20 years but has no idea of the exact number. In their home, you will find quilts hanging on walls, draped on a ladder, folded on shelves, laying over the couch and covering every bed throughout the year. She loves how the warmth of a quilt and how they help make a house a home. Kimberly is currently working on UFO’s and looking forward to January 2019 when she’ll be starting the Patchwork Barn Quilt BOM designed by Edita Satir, which is being offered at Ben Franklin, Monroe and maybe even break open her Freedom Bound kit designed by Denise Lipscomb.
