Kaitlyn Howell

Kaitlyn is a pattern designer of two years, a long arm quilter of 12 years, and a quilter of 19 years. She first started quilting at age 11, with the intention of making a quilt to match the rest of her bedroom décor. Now, she enjoys it because it allows her the expression of her creativity. She feels that she can experience a stronger connection with and love for humanity by sharing her creations with the world.

She runs the long arm quilting and pattern-design business Knot and Thread Design, LLC. You can stay updated with her business on her Instagram page @KnotAndThread. Some of her patterns include: Olivia’s BasketsSecond Star Quilt, and Hello Pouches.

She has had several opportunities to travel to Zambia with Mothers Without Borders and share her sewing skills with the women there to help empower them to become more self-reliant. These are some of her most cherished memories. Her mission is to create products that will allow quilters to be more organized so that they can be more present and focused on the things that bring them joy.

She and her husband of two years recently bought their first home in Orem, UT. She also loves sunshine, finding excuses to get together and sew with her friends, and chocolate chip cookies.
