Vicki Kerkvliet comes from a long line of quilters and began her own quilting journey in 2000 when she enrolled in a class. As an elementary school teacher she set the goal of piecing one quilt top a year in between her teaching responsibilities.
Vickis dream of owning a longarm machine was realized in 2011 with the purchase of an HQ Avante with Pro-Stitcher. She recently acquired an HQ Sweet Sixteen. After 27 years in the elementary education profession, she joined the Handi Quilter education team and is thrilled to merge her love of teaching with her love of quilting in a new career path. She sets beginning quilters at ease and encourages experienced quilters to enjoy their quilting journey while exploring new options.
Vicki is a member of the Starlight Quilters Guild in Kansas City. She has two adult sons and enjoys traveling with her husband and granddaughter each summer to explore national parks.
