Instructor

Whitney, Kristina
Kristina Whitney began quilting with her grandmother in the 1990s. Her love of quilting continued to grow when she shared it with others as she moved around the United States and Guatemala. She pieced and quilted on her domestic machine until being introduced to longarm quilting in 2013. Once she got her hands on a longarm machine, she was hooked. She loves to share her passion for longarm quilting with others. Kristina has taught locally, nationally, and internationally and loves to watch her students when they have their “aha” moment. Her goal is to give her students the skills and knowledge to overcome their fears and gain the confidence they need. She enjoys all types of longarm quilting including rulers, computerized, micro, feathers, free-motion, and everything in between. In addition to teaching, she runs her own quilting business and enjoys making quilts for charities. Kristina loves to think outside of the box and to push herself to try new things. Her passion for quilting is contagious! Facebook: Kristina Whitney-Kristina’s Quilting Instagram: kristinas_quilting. To see more go to kristinasquilting.wordpress.com
