About designer Lynne Hagmeier
Lynne learned to quilt over 25 years ago at a local quilt shop in Salina, Kansas, called The Quilting Bee, while working there part time. Her love of quilting evolved from other interests over the years; from cross-stitch & painting to home decorating & antiques. In 2000, Moda fabrics offered Lynne an opportunity to design fabric for their growing company. What a thrill to create a line of fabrics in exactly the colors you want & then make a quilt you've designed with that new fabric! In 2001 (after the last kid went off to college), she & her husband Robert sold their house & moved to a restored two-story brick building in Lynne's childhood hometown of Bennington, Kansas, to expand her studio & offer Quilting Getaways on the weekends. Robert joined the business full-time, promising Lynne that if she designed & made quilts, he'd do everything else. Lynne is traveling several times a year to quilt shops and guilds across the country to offer programs & workshops from her quilt books & patterns. Lynne has partnered with Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts to teach quilting workshops at wonderful destinations. Our next destination is in Mackinaw City, MI in September 2014!
