My name is Kathryn LeBlanc and I was born & raised and currently reside in Massachusetts.
First and foremost I am a survivor who just celebrated 22 years cancer free!
I consider myself a 10 year old, “quilter” that is… and was (up until a year ago) a 5 year old (brick and mortar) quilt shop owner. And also a 5 year old Long Arm Quilter. I mostly FMQ’s, on a HQ Avante. Now, I am a 1 year old online/social media quilt retailer!
I have produced multiple patterns for my store, various programs and for shop shops… and just recently had a fabric manufacturer pick up a new pattern that I designed for them.
Currently I predominately work retail sales from weekly Facebook live video clearance sales our FB page Dragonfly’s Quilting Design Studio and we also have Dragonfly’s Overstock FB group. As well as Instagram!
I continue to do local and regional Quilt Shows.
Little known fact, I used to suffer from extreme stage fright, and have actually aspired to be a public/motivational speaker!… Ha ha, I win!
I enjoy creating memory quilts and items for customers, another service I offer. And I have a small line of Zipper Pulls that I assemble, package and sell. My go forward plans in the industry include a quilters workbook, designing some dragonfly fabric (which I should really get to finishing), quilt judging and continuing to design patterns.
Have just set up the first Designers Quilt Show (Virtual) running from 4/13 – 4/19/2020
