Meet the Teacher: Brianne Kroupa

Brianne Kroupa is a professional longarmer that has been longarming for about 4 years. She’s also the teacher for Beginning Quilting and will be teaching a bag making class in the spring.

Here’s a little about Brianne in her own words:

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was little I loved it, but I wasn’t able to stick with it due to family things. Then about 7 years ago I ventured into quilting and I have loved it ever since.

I sew pretty much all the time, but in the off chance I’m not in my sewing room you will probably find me in an airplane. My other love is aviation, but that conversation is for another time and place.

I have learned a lot about sewing and quilting since I began my journey. I have worked at some amazing quilt shops with amazingly talented coworkers and owners. I love teaching people new tricks and tips about sewing. I will try and teach you what I know but if for some reason I don’t have the answer, we will find it together.
