Krista Bleer
Krista Bleer
Elmore City, Oklahoma
Krista’s love for sewing started very young and was taught to her by three special people in her life. She remembers sitting on her grandmother’s floor watching her sew and playing with the fabric strings as they rolled off her serger. At 13 her Great Grandmother introduced her to a love for quilting. She taught her the importance of details and perfectly matching and pressing every square. Lastly, her mom also played a big part of her becoming the sewist she is today. She taught that no matter what Krista imagined, if she could dream it, she could make it. She took everything these women had taught her and started her own business making handmade items for babies and kids. After having so many of customers come to her and say "my Grandmother use to sew and I wish I would have learned" she started teaching small sewing classes. She loves to teach and watch as her student’s projects come together.

Mary has been involved in the crafting world since the age of 12, but didn't begin sewing until her late 30's when a lifelong fascination with quilting was fostered by a very talented and patient neighbor. With a basket of scrap strips and a log cabin pattern, her first quilt was created. Mary’s addiction for fabric and patterns began! Her love of Cuddle® started with a baby quilt and a daughter that wanted "wubbie" for backing. From there, the discovery of a local pattern designer of receiving blankets with appliqués and matching stuffed animals all created with Cuddle® sealed her fate.

After college, Michelle began teaching HS Math but quickly found that she longed to continue sharing her love of creating, so she opened a side business as a freelance sewing, embroidery, and crafting educator.
