Kim Caskey has been sewing and creating her whole life! She was introduced to sewing at age 5 by her mother and has continued with a passion for sewing for a further 50+ years!

Kim learned patience and techniques from her mom in those early years, which allowed her to sail through the fiber and fashion parts of Home Economics classes in Junior and Senior High. She learned to knit and embroider from her Grannie, learned advanced garment construction from her mom, and picked up cross-stitching, crochet, tatting, and rug hooking along the way. Following high school, Kim received professional training in dressmaking and tailoring, completing the NAIT Diploma Program of Tailoring.

Kim’s quilting study began with Earthly Goods Quilting, in February 1992 and by 1994, she was instructing classes and workshops. She has devoted herself to the art of Quiltmaking and has taught for guilds and groups all over the world, thanks to her international quilting connection.

Kim began hosting Quilt and Textile Tours in 2014 (Celtic Quilt Tours) to Ireland, Scotland, France, Iceland, Wales, England, and Japan. She is looking forward to continue her tour experiences with Blue Barn Adventures to fabulous destinations such as France, Italy, Australia, The Netherlands…..etc.

Through these international quilt and textile tours, Kim has met quilters from all over the world, which has provided unique opportunities of collaboration for projects like the World Wide Whispers collection, and the Share Jane Global Collaborative quilt project.

“I am passionate about quilting and am grateful to have the opportunity to inspire others. My intent is to educate and enthuse in an atmosphere of fun and support. Students enjoy my relaxed way of teaching and appreciate my encouragement of confidence.

I have taught classes at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels to enthusiastic students all over the world. Students describe me as entertaining, positive, knowledgeable, and organized.”
