Karlee Porter – Quilting since 2009, but an artist all her life, Karlee has traveled the world to teach quilting and loves connecting with and inspiring her students to quilt on their own terms. She is a notorious Quilt-Police evader and loves all things in rainbow order. Karlee loves to push the boundaries in her quilting and design work, and tends to blur the lines between traditional quilting techniques and 21st century technology. She designs and prints her own fabric, and is also an avid computerized quilting and embroidery design creator. She resides in Northern Utah with her husband Andrew and their baby boy, Nate. When she isn't in the studio, she loves exercising and cooking Click here to see a video of Karlee .

Join Karlee for a trunk show lecture where she tells you all about how she started her quilting journey, how and why she breaks the "quilting rules" and her many run-ins with the quilt police! Learn how to throw your caution to the wind and create for the sake of progression, not perfection! While you may not take away much technical knowledge on how to quilt, you will walk away with sore cheeks (from smiling) and sore abs from laughing. Sometimes we all just need a pick me up, and a reminder that our work is beautiful- imperfections and all. Also, there will be door prizes given and goodies for sale.
