Meet Your Quilting Instructor

Sherri Hisey

Sheri Hisey Border Creek Station

Sheri Hisey Border Creek Station

Border Creek Station Pattern Company

Sherri began quilting over 30 years ago when a good friend signed them both up for beginner classes calling her on vacation to tell her they were going to learn how to quilt! That beginner class, all sewn by hand and cut with scissors, was repeated three times. Sherri stands by her story that it was all because they provided tea, cookies and free babysitting!

Border Creek Station Logo2.jpg

When Sherri started teaching quilting classes, she began by taking the mystery out of the quilt making process and focused on mastering solid techniques so quilters would have confidence to complete the projects they wanted to, while keeping the emphasis on fun. As a joke to her students Sherri created a mystery project to keep them guessing and have fun with this mysterious quilting adventure. They loved the process and demanded more. So ironically, through her Border Creek Station Pattern Company, Sherri brought “mystery” and “fun” back together with the BCS Mystery Quilt Club. As one of the largest mystery quilt programs offered, Sherri designs an original quilt each year and has done so for the last 18 years.

Sherri lives in a small ‘ghost-town’ village of Kilworthy in Ontario, Canada with her very supportive husband Ron (who works fulltime with Sherri including binding all of her quilts - he is a keeper!) and since their children have left the nest, they also keep busy with their two furry pals Jessie and Logan, both hunting dogs who love the outdoors and of course, cuddling with quilts.

PROJECTS FOR THE CRUISE

Sherri is working on something special for this trip. Sherry is planning 2 projects, one is a Mystery.

This project uses mock up fabrics  batiks in blues. The project is 71 x 81.

Meet Your Quilting Instructors

Meet Vicki McCarty

Meet Vicki McCarty

Vicki McCarty is a fabric and pattern designer, instructor and the owner of Calico Patch Quilt Shop...The home of Calico Patch Designs.  Vicki learned to quilt from her grandmother over 40 years ago in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.  In 1998, she began teaching quilting classes for the local Community Education and grew a small quilting community in eastern Kentucky.  In 2000, she opened her quilt shop and continued to teach sewing, quilting and embroidery to hundreds of people.  Her and her quilting husband Tom, are featured as a Top 10 Quilt shop in Better Homes & Gardens Fall 2018 Quilt Sampler Magazine and their project was featured on the front cover! 

 Vicki designs quilts for classes, shop hops and quilting retreats.  In 2015 she introduced her quilting patterns nationwide as Calico Patch Designs.  She has since been lecturing and teaching at quilt shows and guilds across the country.  Vicki’s designs have been published in American Quilter, Quilt Sampler, AQS's OnPoint magazine and the MODA Bakeshop.

  Vicki McCarty’s first fabric line with Marcus Fabrics, “Patches Of Joy” was introduced at the 2018 International Quilt Market and made available to shops in April 2019.  It was inspired by her Calico Christmas Stitch-A-Long, which gained her social media attention on several Facebook Sewing groups.  Her second line of fabric with Marcus will be released summer of 2019.

 Vicki loves to mix wool applique with traditional cotton antique blocks made with quick and practical methods.   

Meet Dawn Shuck

Meet Dawn Shuck

A lot of people end their day by reading before they go to bed but I try to end every day with a bit of hand stitching. Hand sewing is my first love. I always say it is “my therapy”. For me there is nothing more relaxing or calming. My hope is that I can pass on that passion through the classes that I teach all over the country. In class you will learn all aspects of wool applique including a short lecture on my wool dying process, felting, favorite tools, and finishing techniques. 

 Several years ago my mother gave me a small, stained potholder with a little stamped kitten embroiderd on it. The stitches were irregular and long and did not completely cover the ink that made up the design. On the back of it though were my mother's perfect, even stitches that she had stitched Dawn 1967. I was almost 5 years old when I stitched that kitten.  So when I say that I was stitching before I could write I really do mean it.

I started sewing with a sewing machine in the second grade and the first thing I ever made was a long patchwork skirt with an EXTREMELY large ruffle along the bottom. (Something my children refer to as the flower child years). I know for certain that I probably wore that thing to school at least twice a week, mending it that often as well. Then one day it mysteriously disappeared before I could wear it to the 3rd grade. My mother denies to this day she had anything to do with the disappearance of my skirt.

I started quilting in the mid 90’s and have never stopped since. 13 years ago my sister introduced me to the wonderful world of wool and I immediately fell in love with everything about wool. Now all of my designs have some wool component in them. I found that Crazy Quilting with wool was a wonderful way to combine my love of hand stitching and quilting. It also led to the development of our signature product, Crazy Stitches. A preprinted, water-soluble stitch guide.

I live on Tablerock Lake outside of Branson, MO with my husband David, and two rotten dogs Elvis and Presley. We have three children and 11 grandchildren that are my pride and joy.

OUR PROJECTS, AND MORE TO COME

Let's get ready for summer with Sweet Summertime. Hand dyed wool for your applique will be used on antique linen. The linen that you will use for your background was handwoven in the late 1800's and comes from Europe! Each piece will be just a bit different as these backgrounds are very old. The wool is all hand dyed and felted from Sew Cherished and your piece will be finished off with a fun button trim.

Meet Your Quilting Instructor

Meet Debbie Kanlenty

Meet Debbie Kanlenty

Hello, I’m Deborah “Debbie” Kalenty .  I live in Central New Jersey (have lived here my entire life);  I earned a Bachelors degree in Accounting and worked in Corporate America for many years.   I have been quilting since 1989 (so almost 30 years), and have thoroughly enjoyed learning new tools and techniques along the way.   

 As a stay at home Mom of 2 children (now grown), I decided I wanted to work ‘part time’ and still be home for my kids.  So why not work in something that I enjoyed!  I opened my online quilt store, www.QuiltersObsession.com in 2005.    At first, it was only online, but then I began vending at area quilt shows.   I discovered Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design tools and learned how much they improved my quilting skills.  I became a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor in March 2014.  While I taught quilting classes before becoming Certified, I’ve taught much more regularly and on more subjects since.  

 Over the last several years I’ve enjoyed traveling while lecturing, teaching, vending and designing my own patterns.  I’ve had several patterns published in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting magazines.  I’ve also had my quilts accepted into Nationally Judged quilt shows. 

 I love teaching beginners or those who are new to our tools.  As students see our improved techniques and the accuracy gained while using these tools, they get SO excited—-it is a joy for me to see!   I look forward to meeting you on this cruise, and adding an enthusiastic spark to your quilting abilities! 

Debbie’s Projects

Have you always wanted to improve your piecing accuracy and learn new techniques?   Join our ’skill builder’ class and learn Studio 180 Design tools:  Tucker Trimmer, Wing Clipper, V-Block, and Square Squared tools.   We will make sampler blocks and you then choose from three layouts.  As part of your quilting kit, you will receive all the fabric for your quilt top (including binding), pattern and all required tools.  You can also choose from two different color ways:  Ocean or Autumn.

Meet Heather Kojan

I've been sewing since my teens and quilting for more than 25 years. My first quilt was an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day. Since I had a king sized bed, it made sense to me to make a king sized quilt. Go big or go home, right? That quilt was in shades of mauve and dusty blue (hello mid '80's!) Let's just say my fabric tastes have changed since then!

I consider myself a modern quilter, with traditional roots. I'm the founder of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild and love speaking to different groups and sharing the modern aesthetic. I'm foremost a teacher. I teach modern quilting classes in local shops, guilds and shows across the country.

I'm a contributing author to the book Classic Modern Quilts and a featured quilter in The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood. You can also find my work in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine and Modern Patchwork Magazine.

 

Let's connect! You can find me on my blog: www.heatherkojan.com or on Instagram @heatherkojan.

Gudrun Erla, the designer and owner of GE Designs is born and raised in Iceland. She started quilting at the age of 23 and became totally addicted to it right away. After owning and running quilt shops in her home country and designing patterns along side it, a career move brought the family to Minnesota in 2003. Since then Gudrun has been designing full time, publishing patterns and books from her home office in Chanhassen, MN; where the family has been living since the move to the US.

Her “quilt as you go” patterns have been very popular, with easy to follow instructions and quick assembly and finishing. All her patterns are geared toward today’s quilt makers, easy and fast with a modern touch. Gudrun has also been designing fabrics for Red Rooster Fabrics since 2006.
