Krista Hennebury is a geologist by training and quilter by choice. She's been quilting for 16 years in her small home studio near Vancouver, B.C. and blogging about her work and travels since 2009 at poppyprintcreates.blogspot.com. Passionate about sharing her love of quilting with others, and fostering community through stitching together, Krista began a successful day-retreat business over 12 years ago. She is a popular teacher and presenter at traditional and modern guilds in B.C. and has recently enjoyed several international teaching opportunities. Krista enjoys making traditionally-informed modern quilts using designer prints, solids, linen and retired clothing. Her original patterns have been published in Stitch, Australian Homespun, Quilters Connection, Simply Moderne and Quilt Now magazines. Awards include a first place ribbon at QuiltCon 2015 for “Blackbird Fly” and her pinetree variation “Orange Grove” took second place Modern at the Canadian National Juried Show in 2016. Her book of retreat-inspired projects Make It, Take It was published by Martingale in 2015 and she’s twice been a guest on American Patchwork & Quilting Podcast with Pat Sloan.
Krista will share a presentation and trunk on the origins and design aesthetic of the Modern Quilt Guild, her own quilting story and a trunk show of projects from Make It, Take It. She will be bringing signed copies of her book and suite of original patterns.
