Hi everyone! I'm so excited to introduce myself, Kim Lapacek, as the new official blogger for the fabulous Mill House Quilts.
I'm really excited to be joining the Mill House Quilts team! Mill House Quilts is my LQS (Local Quilt Shop) and it's great to have an opportunty to help promote them so others can discover just how great of a place and a community Mill House Quilts is.
I have a lot of fun posts planned to share with you about twice a week throughout the months. You'll be meeting the folks who own and operate Mill House Quilts, get an inside peak at what happens at the infamous Quiltng 'Clubs', see the newests patterns and fabrics that are coming in, get some fabric advice, find out about special challenges, events, shop hops, and so, so much more!
Since you'll be hearing from me often I thought I'd share a little bit about myself with you.
I am a mother, wife, artist, apple orchardist, retired civil engineer, and entrepreneur.
I’m a HUGE fan of online quilt alongs. Participating in them has really helped me hone my piecing skills and encouraged me to try things I never thought I would try (ie: New York Beauty Blocks). Also, they’ve been great for helping me use my scrap stash!
In 2010 I dreamed up Project QUILTING, and since then hundreds of quilts have been created and thousands of dollars worth of prizes have been awarded.
I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm about creativity through teaching, lecturing, and blogging.
I started teaching at Mil House Quilts during the summer of 2014. I'm also a regular participant at the Block of the Month Club and the Modern Quilting Club on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.
