Jackie Kunkel of Canton Village Quilt Works - Quilting Instructor

 

Jackie Kunkel

Jackie Kunkel, owner of Canton Village Quilt Works, grew up in Northern New Jersey where she learned to sew in her 6th grade economics class. This mother of two graduated college in 1987 and has been a quilter since 1993. She is now a Judy Niemeyer Certified Teacher and has been making Quiltworx patterns since the early 2000. She travels the country teaching workshops and doing trunk shows. Jackie has also been a quilt designer for magazines and fabric companies since 2009 and has had her own line of published patterns since 2015.

Chris Hoover of Whirligig Designs- Quilting instructor

Chris Hoover

Chris Hoover, the designer for Whirligig Designs, began quilting over 30 years ago. Little did she know that the quilting hobby would become a passion. She pulls influence from all colors and textures that life has to offer. Chris, a self-proclaimed "eclectic designer," has been designing for over 15 years now and uses various techniques, fabric types, styles, and colors.

On a more personal note, Chris is the wife of a very supportive husband, the mother of two boys and two rescue dogs, the mother-in-law to a fellow quilter, and the grandmother to an adorable grandson. She enjoys reading, knitting, walking the dogs, riding her bike, and most of all, visiting her grandson.
