Welcome to Stitched in Purple. My name is Kim. I am Mom to one adult son and a five-year old mixed Terrier rescue. Most days I eat, sleep, and breathe crafting, fabric, and quilting. I started sewing clothing at age 11 after winning a Singer sewing contest with a top-stitched sundress complete with a ruffled skirt and buttons down the back. (I still remember buying the fabric at Sears.) Over the years I have dabbled in most forms of textile art. These days I spend most of my time quilting, thinking about quilting, talking about quilting, and sharing my quilting with others. I hope you enjoy this new journey of sharing my passion.
