A Machine Dealer’s Dream!

When a gal has 10 of the top 100 patterns on the Checker website, Kim Christopherson of Kimberbell has gone from a great designer to a LEGENDARY designer!  She not only has an eye for designing appliques that make everyone smile, she has an engineering mind that creates new concepts that make my head spin!

Her latest Pinwheel Parade pattern should be showcased at every summer event!
