Katy started sewing by taking her mother's scraps and making doll clothes. Her love of the sewing process is evident in her classes and workshops, especially when she steps outside of the box when problem-solving. She has traveled all over the United States for Janome, supporting quilting and sewing events. As an experienced instructor and past salesperson for a large Janome dealer, Katy tries to attempt to 'break it down' - making complicated techniques into simple instructions is her specialty - while keeping the fun in sewing with her bubbly personality. Her calm demeanor helps get through those tricky parts of a project.
