Our Kimberbell Story
Many years ago, Kim Christopherson, then a fourth grade teacher, decided to pause her career to stay home with her children. “When I made the switch, I found myself wanting a creative outlet,” Kim says, “so I started designing and selling pillows on eBay.” As these pillows gained popularity among DIYers, Kim expanded her designs to include quilting and machine embroidery projects.
Kimberbell took a big leap forward in 2011 when Kim’s twin sister, Kris, decided to open a quilt shop in town. Wanting to be supportive, Kim used her talents to help Kris build her business through new products and programs. This familial connection within the industry gives Kim valuable insight into a shop owner’s perspective, inspiring unique and successful programs such as Fill in the Blank, Dealer Exclusives, and Kimberbell Certified Events sponsored in quilt shops around the world.
Kimberbell delights in helping others Experience the Joy of Creativity™ through superior machine embroidery, quilting, and sewing projects. With a passion for our industry, we have the sincere desire to help everyone succeed, from the independent quilt shop owner to the newest stitching enthusiast.
We believe that providing the best experience possible for machine embroiderers, quilters, and sewists helps us all rise together! Whether you attend a Kimberbell Event at your favorite quilt shop, purchase The Bella Box™ full of exclusive projects, or simply watch our Tuesday Tips, we invite you to Experience the Joy of Creativity™ with Kimberbell.
