Designs By Kathy Helton

"I live in the Appalachian Mountain’s of Virginia where mountain traditions lead to many types of crafting. As a 5th generation quilter my roots have shown me why I love to craft so much and why instinct has lead the way. Nothing has ever intrigued me like paper crafting and I look forward to sharing my ideas with you." - Kathy
