You have to love Kim of VaBeachQuilter, she is the guild master of the Artfire guild ‘Shops With Less Than (10) Sales,’ she runs a blog of the same name and tirelessly promotes members from this team via twitter, blogging, chatterbox threads, facebook fan page and various other means of promotion. She helps our smaller shops by pointing out ways that we may have overlooked to help get traffic come to our shops.
Aside from guild master and mentor she is also a brilliant quilter and business woman. She has sold a number of quilts for local MLB players and their family and even sold a custom quilt that was mentioned in an article by Seth Livingstone, a reporter for USA Today.
She lives her craft by working and teaching in a local Quilt shop. She’s been machine quilting for 10 years now, predominantly machine piecing, but she does some hand piecing as well. Her items are all gorgeous, and let me tell you, there is NOTHING like snuggling up with a quilt while watching your favorite tv show or even better (if you are lucky enough) to sleep under one at night. As the daughter of a quilter, I can really appreciate all the hard work that goes into one.
Kim a wide assortment of other items: table runners, notekeepers, wallets, gift/business card cases, hand-pieced wool items, baby/toddler items, and so much more. I just love her adorable VeeBee Creatures.
Here’s a selection of some of the goodies you will find in her shop – please stop by and show her some link love!
