Shea Henderson is owner of the pattern company Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio. She is a former middle school math teacher turned sewing pattern designer– two careers that are, surprisingly, not so different from each other! Her work has been published in Modern Quilts Unlimited and Quilts & More magazines and she is a contributor to the book Modern Baby. Shea is one of the founding members and former president of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild. When not designing, Shea can be found teaching a group of friends and neighbors the craft of sewing. She lives in Kansas City, MO with her husband and three young children.
