Add a bit of color!

Inspired by my fellow FreeSpirit Designer prints, I took them on to design some unique pieces just for them. I love them and the color is just sublime, from rich navy and greens by Heather Bailey, delicate petals by Amy Butler and brilliant brights by Anna Maria Horner, add a touch of whimsey love by Zandra Rhodes and this is what I came up with. All available on
Stores please email us or see them at Quilt Market this October.
Big love,



Love this publication! It's by the amazing Jo Packham of WHERE WOMEN CREATE featuring studios of creative working individuals, authors and retailers too. She also is the editor for WHERE WOMEN COOK and WHERE WOMEN CREATE BUSINESS.
All amazing publications. You can find them on amazon and also STAMPINGTON PRESS. Links below.

I am so thrilled to be in WHERE WOMEN CREATE BUSINESS this fall. My article is about me running my business, being in business and navigating through change. Something I've learned to do well. I think you will enjoy it.



Sew Much Style

I love my sewing patterns on and we are thrilled that our sweet Zoe and Beatrice get so much attention! They seem to fall into their own category. And that's a sewer between 18 and 30... Thus we are exploring a new section on called SEW MUCH STYLE targeting a youthful sewer who loves the likes of Anthropologie and FreePeople.. If that's you tell me what you want to see... a few inspirational images are shown above... we like the playfulness of the prints, sporty and yet with a romantic flair.  I can't wait to share the new patterns with you.

Happy New Year sewing.... During these colder days it's so lovely to sew. We live in NC where it's been chilly -- not below zero, but cold, and the sun shines in the windows. There's nothing better than cutting, and stitching up something wonderful.
To celebrate we released 3 new great sewing patterns for you on
These are my newest favorites! I wear all 3 pieces a lot!
Sending hugs and kisses your way.
Happy sewing!


RIDDLES & RHYMES fabric collection for FreeSpiritFabric

Recently I received my personal sample stash of my latest fabric collection RIDDLES & RHYMES. What a sweet group of fabrics this is. My illustration of favorite characters really comes through in this collection. You can see my hand drawn sketch lines.
The range was separated into two groups - boys and girls. And two colorways per. I love this line and hope you do too.
We're debuting a new form of pattern ideas in the form of a digital e-pattern book online. So watch for news on the RIDDLES & RHYMES PLAYBOOK of sewing projects and patterns.

Big hugs to you this NEW year.
