About The Quilting Circle
Kathleen Jones, owner of The Quilting Circle, discovered quilting on a trip across the US in 1970. Her first quilt infused passion for this textile art form, which has continued for over 35 years. Her quilt collection grew over time into the hundreds and brought her to the decision to leave the corporate world. Six years ago, her passion materialized into the opening of her shop in Bensalem, PA.
Kathleen’s philosophy is to create an environment in which customers are encouraged to explore the art of quilt making in an atmosphere of friendship. Her background in Human Resources, coupled with her genuine love for people, enables her to unlock the creative spirit in all her customers - from the novice through the experienced quilter. During the six years she has been teaching she has assembled a team of instructors that make classes fun and motivational. www.thequiltingcircle.com
