Kathie Beltz, 2021 QuiltFest Lecturer

I am totally addicted to quilting, and enjoy associating with other quilters who are equally addicted. I’ve been quilting since 1995, teaching since 2004, and judging quilts since 2007. I concentrate on machine piecing and quilting, and I’m always trying new techniques, gadgets and patterns. I love quilting because it is my therapy. “Me” time in my sewing room is my favorite thing. But on the flip side, I also love the socialization involved in quilt guilds, quilt shows, and quilting retreats. I try to attend quilt retreats twice a year – what a joy to have uninterrupted sewing time! I also have extensive judging experience. My judging philosophy is to acknowledge excellence in quilting, and to educate and encourage quilters of all skill levels. I like to consider my judging work as an extension of my teaching, guiding quilters to improve their skills through constructive comments. About Kathie: Professional quilter, teacher, and quilt judge Long time sewer purchasing her first sewing machine at age 15 with money from her first job. Active member of two quilt guilds. Award winning quilter at over 20 quilt shows across the country. Quilts juried into AQS Paducah in 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, winning ribbons in 2015 and 2017. Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design, Deb Tucker’s tool and technique company. Pattern designer of Companion Patterns for Studio 180 Design with her company, From Kathie Beltz Quilt Designs. Ambassador for Beth Helfter’s Accordion-Sewn HSTs Member of the Creators Club at Northcott Fabrics.
