About Me


Who is the GeekQuilter?


Hi, I'm Lee Haynes.  I grew up in the midwest and am now securely planted in New England with my husband and two dogs, Pixel and Taco.  

I learned to sew from my mom when I was very young, making everything from Quillows (do you remember those?  Quilt/Pillow hybrids, I just saw them making a bit of a comeback on Pinterest), to my prom dress.  I started quilting in 2001 when my mom took a beginning quilting class and said, "Hey, you might want to try this..."  My friends started having babies and it was a perfect storm.  My first quilt is probably long shredded in the wash, and the recipient is in High School now...  Whatever, I'm still not *that* old.

Currently, I have an Etsy shop where I sell some great crib quilts with 8-bit video game characters on them.  I make bigger sizes, too for us older folks.

I am also an educator, with classes on organization, beginner quilting, EQ8, Tech Inspiration, and making pixel quilts.  Check my events page for upcoming events, and e-mail me to book an event!
