Kathy Groves, of Austin, TX, has been an educator for more than 35 years. Throughout a variety of jobs, though, her long-time passion has always been quilting!
She says of her quilt journey, “I love working with colors, the geometry, the problem solving. I love seeing hundreds of pieces coming together in a work of art! Little did I know when I started quilting more than 20 years ago that I would find a special niche that would let me put all of these experiences together.
“In recent years I’ve been the program chair and president for my local guild. I’ve organized multiple quilt shows, and developed presentations and classes for guilds through out the region. Now I’ve come full circle. I’ve learned that I have a knack for using my organizational and teaching skills to help others learn how to quilt and expand their quilt making skills repertoire.
“After several years of sewing, studying and more than 6 visits to Montana, I became a Quiltworx Certified Instructor. I’ve completed more than 60 “Judy” paper-piecing quilts and I’ve had the privilege of working through more than a hundred hours of workshops with Judy Niemeyer and her staff.
“In 2018 I had the honor of having a Quiltworx pattern – Tarnished Windmill – displayed at Spring Market promoting RJR Fabrics and Quiltworx Patterns. In 2019, I was asked to create one of the Dinner Plate Dahlia quilts that now adorns the cover of Book #5. I continue to be awed at the precision of the pattern and the ease of assembly of these heirloom quilts.”
Kathy owns BobKatQuilts.com, an online store specializing in Judy Neimeyer patterns, kits and fabrics, plus a variety of speaker and workshop opportunities (including online Judy Neimeyer classes.
