June 2018 Program

Lynne Hagmeier

The Kansas Troubles name has been familiar to thousands of quilters and especially those of us from Kansas. So it is especially exciting to have the creator of Kansas Troubles Lynne Hagmeier, speak to us at Guild and offer a workshop the following day. Lynn has created hundreds of quilting patterns, published 2 dozen books (five in a series of historical quilts as
well as quilter’s journals) & designed over 50 collections of fabric with Moda.

Lynne learned to quilt over 25 years ago at a local quilt shop in Salina, Kansas while working their part time. In 2000, Moda fabrics offered Lynne an opportunity to design fabric for their growing company. What a thrill for her to create a line of fabrics in exactly the colors you want and then make a quilt she herself designed with that new fabric! In 2001 she and her husband Robert sold their house and moved to a restored two-story brick building in Lynne’s childhood hometown of Bennington, Ks, to expand her studio and offer
Quilting Getaways on the weekends. Lynne and Robert travel several times a year to quilt shop and guilds across the country to offer programs and workshops from her quilt books and patterns. Check out her books, patterns and teaching schedule here. We have only a few openings in her workshop with us. http://www.ktquilts.com/index.htm

Lynne and Robert have 6 grown children and 8 grandchildren to love and spoil. Lynne is most generous with sharing her creative ideas with fellow quilters and you can find free patterns on her website here. http://www.ktquilts.com/freepatterns.htm
