Since she was eight years old, Kristie Naranjo has been using all types of needles and thread in some way.  Her of working with her hands led her to sewing clothes for herself, embroidery, cross stitch, and crochet.  In her thirties, she started knitting professionally for knitwear designers, which led to teach knitting to elementary kids in an after-school program.  In her forties, she resumed her love for sewing and started quilting after a fateful trip to visit her sister-in-law.  Standing in her sister-in-law's quilt studio sparked something inside of her and she never looked back.  Now she feels lucky to be a certified quilt instructor teaching Shannon Brinkley's scrappy appliqué method for quilting guilds, quilt shops, and individuals looking to learn new and unique techniques.
