Kim is the founder of Cotton Cuts. She has been quilting since she was 13 years old but sewing for as long as she could sit in a chair next to her mom. She loves the geometry and the puzzle piecing elements of quilting. She likes to refer to her craft as “textile engineering” and she considers her style to be transitional modern (bright colors and non-traditional assembly of traditional blocks). She has recently learned how to paper piece and her world was changed. She has two boys, 6 and 4 years old. She teaches sewing and quilting in her neighborhood and looks forward to one day teaching her own boys.
Alex is our guru of all things social media at Cotton Cuts. Alex is a relatively new quilter. She took her first quilting class as a gift from Kim last Christmas, which was a Mystery Quilt made during the Super Bowl. It is her oldest WIP in her craft room. She is a developing modern quilter and loves to sew with blenders and solids. The more asymmetric, the more she loves it. She is also a lover of beautiful yarn and loves to crochet in her spare, spare time. She has two children, a 8 year old daughter and a 6 year old son.
Debbie is our fabric guru at Cotton Cuts. She learned to quilt as a child from her grandmother, who taught her to hand quilt and embroider. As she grew up, she was never far from her sewing as it kept her close to her grandmother. She taught herself how to machine sew while making a baby quilt for her first child. It was then that she started working at a LQS and her fabric stash blossomed appropriately. She is a traditional quilter and loves to sew in basic, but beautiful, quilt blocks. She has three children, two boys (22 and 19) and a 16 year old daughter.
Sue is our guru of all things creative at Cotton Cuts. She is the visionary behind our logo and all design elements. She studied graphic design and has a creative eye for color. She has been a lover of art and color since she was a small child. She picked up a love of fabric from her mother and started out designing clothing but has recently converted to quilting handbags and accessories. She describes her style as Equal Opportunity and selects fabrics from a wide range when creating. She lives with her husband and two dogs, a beagle and a brittany.
Jenny’s first sewing project was at age 11. Her Mom taught her how to follow a pattern and make a jumper dress for her young cousin. She also received a sewing box filled with supplies for Christmas that year. As an adult, her mother-in-law gifted her an amazing, vintage Bernina sewing machine. Jenny enjoyed sewing basic items for her daughter and young family members until her middle 30’s. That is when she discovered a quilt pattern she liked and went for it. She now loves to quilt and adores picking out the perfect fabrics to make personalized quilts for family and herself. She looks forward to teaching her daughter the time-honored skill of quilting. When she’s not sewing, she enjoys time with her family and her two cats.
