Guiding You to Quilt With Confidence

Creative from childhood

HollyAnne Knight is a 20-something wife, mama, and artist. She has a life-long love of visual arts, she has knit more scarves than she can count, and she loves to dance in all styles from classical ballet to ballroom to Zumba. She has been married to the Hubster (John) since May 2013, and they have two boys, Jem (December 2014) and Ian (March 2016). They live in Duluth, Georgia near HollyAnne's parents and enjoy being outside, sharing meals and adventures with friends, and singing silly songs. 

Quilter today

While HollyAnne's first exposure to machine sewing was at the young age of 8, it was much more recently that she returned to it. She began with a tshirt quilt for her Mama. Today, she is passionate about providing encouraging, approachable workshops, tutorials, and patterns. She hopes these resources will help other quilters work with confidence rather than being afraid they will "mess up" their quilt.
