Kristin has been in love with fabric, journaling and creativity since she was a tiny girl. Herpassion for this self-expression led her to the quilt world where she's created, designed, taught and written about quilts nationally for 30  years. In her books, A Southern Album and most recently, At Piece with Time: a Woman's Journey Stitched in Cloth, Kristin encourages
other women to celebrate their unique story by documenting it in cloth.

For the last 6 years, Kristin
has been absorbed in the
“altered” world. She finds
visual journaling exactly
what she's been looking for,
allowing her to use her
beloved fabric in both book
and journal formats. Her
work is featured in The Art
of Fabric Books
and in
Altered Board Books and
, both by Jan Smiley,
and has been featured in
several issues of Sew
and Haute
magazines. Her
art graced the cover of  the
Spring 2006 issue of Cloth Paper and Scissors magazine. She has taught at Artfest, Artfiberfest, the John C. Campbell School and Oxford Summer School in Oxford, England. She is a co-founder of the inspirational Believe in Yourself Retreat, held each fall in Blowing Rock, NC.

Together with her husband Bill, she runs Adventures In Italy, offering small group tours that explore the art, culture, food and wine of beautiful Orvieto Italy.

Kristin adores teaching anything to do with the creative process. Her most earnest wish is that we each uncover the genuine creative genius residing deep within, then give it life through our work.
