Kimberbell Events and Clubs

by Cathy Ellsaesser, posted on

Kimberbell, founded by Kim Christopherson, delights in helping others Experience the Joy of Creativity™ through superior machine embroidery, quilting, and sewing projects. Their products and events inspire unique and successful programs such as Fill in the Blank, Dealer Exclusives, and Certified Kimberbell Events sponsored in quilt shops around the world.

Accordingly, Rocky Mountain Sewing and Vacuum is a Kimberbell dealer. As a matter of fact, we not only stock many of their designs and products, but we also have our very own certified instructor, Nancy Tornquist.

Kimberbell Events

At this time, we are so excited to begin offering sewing and embroidery events at our Event Center , and some of the first events are Kimberbell events with Nancy as the instructor.

Summer Nights

If you missed the most recent Kimberbell event, Garden Guild, then be sure to sign up for our next one, Summer Nights, at the Event Center.

Cruise on down to theEvent Center for those sweet Summer Nights! At Kimberbell’s one-day machine embroidery event, you’ll make three peachy-keen projects for gathering with family and friends. Stitch the “Sweet Stash” Roll-up Bag, Pink Roadster Mug Rug, and “S’more Fun” Roasting Stick Tote in 5×7 and 6×10 hoops. Then go home with additional sizes to stitch later.
