Carl Hentsch

Carl Hentsch grew up on the east coast of Florida. He learned to embroider from his mother when he was 10. At the age of 12 he was designing dresses for his two-year old niece, and helping his mother make them. He also learned knitting from his aunt.

In 1999, Carl started quilting. He learned by watching Eleanor Burns, Alex Anderson, and Fons and Porter on TV. After a two-year lull, Carl moved to the Kansas City area and picked up his quilting in 2006. He has had original designs displayed in AQS shows in Knoxville and Des Moines, as well as a traveling quilt with the 2010 Hoffman Challenge. Carl teaches quilting at local quilt shops and has self-published two patterns, Leap Frog and Evergreen. He also had a pattern featured in Issue 10 of The Fat Quarterly.

Carl has degrees in biology, chemistry, accounting, and linguistics. He has traveled the US extensively and also the Orient. To support his quilting habit, he has a day job marketing computer software.

Pat Holly

Pat has been sewing almost her whole life, beginning with sewing clothes as a young girl. She is a graphic artist and attended the University of Michigan School of Art & Design. She also spends time volunteering for her daughter's theater endeavors, including costume work for local productions. Pat and her sister, Sue Nickels, enjoy working together on quilts as well as patterns and books. They live about a three-hour drive from each other and find creative ways to manage working together on projects. Sue travels extensively, teaching machine techniques, and Pat will join Sue occasionally, especially for international trips. This has been a wonderful working relationship. Pat and Sue work so well together because they both love the connection with quilters of the past and enjoy the technology of today.
