My name is Kathy Kansier. I am a quilt teacher, quilt show judge and AQS Certified Quilt Appraiser. I travel to provide these services for guilds, shops, and quilt shows.

I have been happily married to my husband, David for 40 years. We live in Southwest Missouri, between Springfield and Branson. David owns a construction company. We both grew up in Wisconsin, became born-again Christians in 1980, and served as missionaries to Mexico prior to moving to Missouri in 1993. Our seven children are grown and we are now enjoying being grandparents.

I like making quilts using a variety of techniques, colors and fabrics. One day I may be working on a hand appliqué quilt, the next day I may be piecing quilt blocks on my BERNINA and the following day I may be beading on an art quilt. I also enjoy rug hooking and counted cross stitching.

My husband and I have recently opened a retreat house on our property in Ozark, Missouri.  It is located 25 miles from Branson.  The house is decorated with quilts.  It has a large kitchen/living room area, a large classroom, 3 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms with twin beds.  We can comfortably house 13 people.  We offer a variety of group retreats for quilt makers, rug hookers, scrap bookers and crafters.  Please refer to the retreat page on this website for more information and contact us if you are interested in coming for a visit.

If you have a guild or quilt show and are interested in having me teach, judge or appraise, please refer to my pages that list those services.  I travel at least once a month and still have openings in 2019 and 2020.  I'd love to share my love of quilting with your group !!!

Sew Piecefully,

Kathy Kansier
She works willingly with her hands.
Her candle burns on through the night.
She makes herself coverings.
She makes fine linen and sells it.
