Patty Kerns, HQ Educator
Patty has loved sewing ever since she studied home economics in middle school over 40 years ago. Her quilting journey began in 2003 when her eldest child went off to college. From there, Patty?s passion for quilting grew quickly. After joining a local guild, she began to share her new knowledge with others. She has taught classes for the local quilt guild at their annual quilt show, conducted workshops for her local chapter and also worked in a quilt shop to feed her passion for quilting.
In 2014 Patty took her quilting to the next level when she purchased her HQ Fusion? with Pro-Stitcher?. Patty quickly became proficient in using Pro-Stitcher, and now enjoys combining Pro-Stitcher with rulers and free motion quilting. She has been quilting professionally in her community and also enjoys teaching new long arm owners. Like most quilters, she loves sharing the art of quilting, continuously growing her skills and making meaningful connections with quilters.
Patty has had a 36-year career as a Registered Nurse and continues to work part-time in the operating room. She has also served as an adjunct faculty member at George Washington University School of Nursing, overseeing students in the clinical setting.
