Instructor Bio: Linda began sewing as a child and then quilting nearly 40 years ago when her first baby came along (gotta make that baby quilt). Sewing/Quilting was sporadic as she raised children, but about 20 years ago, she developed a passion for quilting and has spent much of her time learning new techniques. 6 years ago when she moved to the Texas Hill Country, she got the opportunity to open Wimberley Stitch Studio, so now most of her time is quilting or thinking about quilting! She loves to share fun techniques and see her students enjoy and excel.
