We are so excited to introduce you to our amazing staff and teachers. Thanks to Rebecca Powers for collecting, compiling and writing our teacher profiles.
Christina Lane, born and raised in Southwest Washington, has been sewing since she was six years old. Taught mainly by her mother, a seamstress for Janzen, Christina learned to make her own clothes and draft her own patterns, including her first pattern—a book cover, at age eight. She even made her prom dress and elaborate costumes for her college history class!Her grandmother and aunt have also been a source of instruction and inspiration throughout her life. She took to quilting in her early twenties as a way to spend time with her mom while they were both working through grief caused by the loss of a loved one.
The beautifully published, Quilting Happiness, was co-authored by Christina Lane and Diane Gilleland. She has also been in several other publications such as, Lunch Bags!, Pretty in Patchwork Holidays, Quilts & More Magazine, and her blog was previously named one of the top 50 blogs to read by Quilter’s Home Magazine. Christina has taught at Sewing Summit for the past two years and has been teaching classes at Modern Domestic for past year.
Christina loves to sew quilts of any kind, especially showing her students “how easy it can be with the right knowledge.” With an appreciation and love of creating, Christina can frequently be found drawing, painting, knitting, embroidering, taking photographs, and sewing, obviously! She is most proud of her Zig Zag Zig quilt from her book, Quilting Happiness, because having “such an intricate pattern come together in a quilt was a proud moment” for her. You can find Christina’s blog, The Sometimes Crafter, as well as her patterns at thesometimescrafter.com. Look for more classes taught by Christina on the Modern Domestic website.
