Instructor: Kimberly Flannagan
Instructor Bio: Kimberly Flannagan started sewing over 40 years ago with her mother and became an avid quilter in 1998 after becoming the recipient of a comfort blanket for her infant daughter. After completing over 50 comfort quilts on her domestic machine, she purchased her first Handi Quilter longarm machine and quickly became intrigued with the longarm quilting process. She started free-motion machine quilting on the original Handi Quilter table frame with her domestic machine in the early 2000s, then moved to a HQ Sixteen? in 2011, and since 2017, she quilts with her HQ Infinity? with Pro-Stitcher?
