I had the privilege of meeting Karlee in Houston in 2018 when she had her debut. I had watched her talking with folks during the week and finally got on the show floor during the week between lunch and class. Wow! This young lady was articulate, fun and had patience in explaining her wonderful techniques and ideas and where she plans to be going. She was bubbly, fun and made you feel like you were on the journey with her. This is my favorite show so far and it was nice to see her smiling face and great attitude again. Let's have her back!

Great show. Love her work.

What app is she using on her Ipad to do the sketching?

Karlee Porter is a real artist incorporating her style into her work, not worrying about the usual rules quilters follow. Her ideas are fresh and new to quilting. Fun to try. She seems to have thought of everything. Even the QR code to show the how’s of her designs as well as explaining as she demonstrates them.
Great artist.

Such an interesting and enjoyable show! It's just great to see young people taking an interest in quilting. I really like being introduced to all forms of quilting, especially something I haven't seen before. And I just have to try couching now! I will definitely follow Karlee's career as a quilter.

A fabulous is wonderful to watch a young graphic artist share her talent and exploration in fiber.It is motivating for the young and ‘seasoned’ alike.

Loved the show! Karlee is a breath of fresh air. She inspired me to get back at my own free motion quilting and try hand lettering.
