Kathy Echter

Kathy has had a lifelong love of the
fabric arts. Taught to sew as a child by
her mother and knitting by a neighbor,
Kathy has continued to explore many
different aspects of the fiber arts. Her
journey of exploration has taken her
through periods of traditional clothes
sewing, heirloom sewing, English
smocking, home decor, quilt top
piecing, quilting, and now,
. Kathy has a Bachelors
Degree in Printing Management and a
Masters Degree in Management and

exceptional eye for color and design,
perfect for quilting!
Computerized Longarm Quilting Services
Kathy has worked in the printing field for the Department of Defense and the
Internal Revenue Service in Washington, DC, has consulted in the field of desktop
publishing, and worked for the Dale Carnegie organization. Her professional
experience is very apparent to her students from over 125 classes and workshops,
as she continuously receives comments that her class was the best they have taken.
Students particularly love her professional class handouts.

When she decided to branch out into computerized longarm quilting, Kathy knew in
order to maintain the expertise expected of her by her clients, she had to further her
education in this new field. She continuously participates in longarm quilting
courses through both Gammill and national longarm quilting conventions, where
she learns the very latest styles and techniques.  Kathy became a Certified Creative
Trainer, the first in New York State, in November, 2008.

Kathy resides in Penfield, NY with her husband, two children, eight sewing
machines, one
, two quilting studios, and 2,492 yards of fabric in her “stash”.
