Kelley McKenzie Joins the Teaching Staff

In 2007 Kelley McKenzie started her career in the sewing industry. She opened Kelley’s Pins and Needles in Purvis, Mississippi. 

After two years in business she had moved her shop twice for expansion ending it in Hattiesburg, Mississippi where it is today.  

While in business she learned how to long arm quilt and that soon became her passion. While she loved being a Quilt Shop Owner,  she sold her business in order to focus on her growing family. 

Kelly has taught in many areas of the country and most recently she has had the privilege of being a teacher’s assistant to some of the most well-known teachers in the industry, at the Houston and Lancaster quilt show. 

Today, she enjoys her time quilting for other people and teaching quilting classes. Kelly enjoys fun, quick and easy projects........come take a class with her.
