Instructor

Spradlin, Stacie
Stacie Spradlin has been sewing and piecing quilts for over 25 years. What began mainly as a hobby while raising and homeschooling her two daughters, it turned into a career in quilting and machine embroidery in 2012 when she opened her Etsy shop Seams Divine. In 2016, she purchased a longarm and quickly became passionate about both edge-to-edge and custom quilting. Stacie is an award-winning quilter, quilts for BeColourful and Riley Blake designers, and has had her quilting work featured in publications. She has taught at the International Quilt Festival in Houston and several other quilt shows throughout the U.S. She also speaks at several quilting workshops where she demonstrates and shares her expertise in both quilting and design. Stacie loves to help fellow longarm quilters develop their own sense of style.
