Join us for our special guest, Linda Hasselberg, owner of Wimberley Stitch Studio and designer of Hassle-Free Patterns in Wimberley, Texas.
Learning to sew as a child, Linda was a self-taught quilter through the 80s and 90s. Pursuing her passion after her children were older, she never turned back. She took classes, loved to quilt daily, then purchased a longarm. After working and longarm quilting for a quilt shop in the Rio Grande Valley, Linda never thought she would own one someday... but dreams do come true. In 2013, Wimberley Stitch Studio was born.
When the Textile Collage patterns began arriving to the shop, she and her team became interested in trying it to help her clients understand how it worked. Requests for classes began. Intimidated by the complexity of these patterns, students both feared and desired to create beautiful collages. That is when Linda, who loves to simplify complex patterns, became obsessed with this art form. From small classes to 3-Day retreats and guild lectures, Linda loves to encourage others that they can create a collage masterpiece using a published pattern and then, if they choose, branch out to design their own.
