Hi! My name is Kelly Nagel and I am the Social Media Manager for Sulky of America. This is my dream job! I get to combine all the things I love: Sewing, writing and meeting wonderfully creative people.
I grew up in Kennesaw, GA and graduated with a degree in English from Florida State University (Go Noles!). I am married to the most amazing man in the world, Rich, and we have two daughters, Korey and Krissy, who are 10 and 8 years old. We live in North Georgia very close to my family and where I grew up. My mother taught me to sew when I was very young. I actually have my very first quilt hanging in my sewing studio (I was about 7 when I made it!). Although I dabbled in sewing my whole life, I got serious about it 15 years ago when my Mother in Law reignited my passion by helping me make a baby quilt. I was addicted after that and have been sewing, taking classes and enjoying the art of sewing and quilting ever since. My relationship with Sulky began when I took the Teacher Certification Class (One of the best classes I have ever taken!) and I fell in love with the amazing threads, stabilizers and the educators.
Working full time while being a wife and mother of two young children means I don’t have a great deal of free time; so I really enjoy quick simple projects. One of the things I hope to do in this role for Sulky of America is share those quick creative projects with you!
Well, that’s a little bit about me. I look forward to getting to know you.
