Red Bear Quilts provides longarm quilting services and quilting education.


Mary Beth Krapil is a national educator for the Handi Quilter company and a certified teacher of Art and Stitch software.


An avid sewer since childhood, Mary Beth has been teaching quilting and piecing classes since 1998. In 2004 she bought an HQ Sixteen to finish her own quilts. She wanted to keep exclusive artistic ownership of the quilts she had pieced and give her quilts “personality” through quilting. Mary Beth's quilts have won awards at AQS Paducah, MQS and Road to California, as well as many local shows in Florida. Her work has been published in books and national and international magazines.


Mary Beth's goal is to share her knowledge and passion for quilting. She loves to teach the basics to new quilters and also enjoys introducing new techniques and ideas to experienced quilters. She's a Handi Quilter Pro-Stitcher expert and has fun sharing the joys of computerized quilting and as a certified teacher of Art and Stitch software loves teaching digitizing.
