Chris Pasquet is the owner and shopkeep at Patch Halifax. She takes an enormous amount of pleasure in helping people select fabrics for their projects and is constantly inspired by the wildly talented sewers (and the ambitions of the aspiring sewers!) she gets to meet at Patch. Her next big project will be a quilt in Robert Kaufman linens, but in the meantime she’s simply enjoying making samples and getting to know the beautiful fabrics and patterns which are lining the shelves in the shop.
Adrienne Klenck, founder of the Maritime Modern Quit Guild, has been quilting for eighteen years. She is a self-proclaimed fabric-aholic, wife, mother of three fur-babies, a project manager, a bookworm, a foodie, a righty, and a fan of to do lists. Adrienne blogs about her quilting adventures at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts. Adrienne teaches the intro to quilting class and the occasional sloth or fancy fox pillow.
Elliot Mussett is eager and excited to interact with the Patch community and engage new and experienced sewers alike! She is a NSCAD Textiles and Fashion graduate, a Halifax native and has a great love for the outdoors, dancing and family (preferably all three together). In addition to Patch, she is currently working in the industry as a researcher and prototype developer for an up and coming local collection. Elliot teaches the ‘simple envelope pillow’ and all clothing making workshops.
Linnet Finley is a textile artist who lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia with her young daughter. Linnet does not remember a time when fabric did not in some way influence her life; from early times spent in her mother’s studio creating one of a kind items on her hand cranked Singer replica sewing machine, to her present role as a quilt artist who enjoys bringing a renewed tradition of hand crafted quality to work for and about children. Linnet teaches many beginner sewing and quilting classes. She especially loves working with kids.
