Whether you share a small room with your family or you have the most palatial space, your sewing room should be the place where you feel happy and inspired to create! Being a military wife with 15 moves under her belt, Kimberly has set up sewing studios in each of her homes and is excited to share the tips and tricks she learned for making the most of the space you have. She will share photos of her sewing rooms, her favorite (and not-so-favorite) features of what works and what does not, and her best tips for setting up your own creative haven. After that, sit back and take a personal tour of Kimberly’s friends’ studios, including those of some of the top quilting stars in the industry, as they open up the doors to their spaces. This fun, informative, and inspiring parade-of-homes style visit will provide a wealth of ideas and tips for transforming your own space into a place where you can be your most creative.

Never one to adhere to rules, Gail began breaking the quilting edicts soon after she learned the basics necessary to create an original design. Problems with bindings on corners? Just leave the corners off! It’s fun and easy to be your own designer and to break away from the tedium of repetitive block design. Gail will lead you on a journey of exploration, from the valley of tradition, along the rocky road of great ideas gone wrong, to the rainbow peaks of increased creativity in quilts!
