Learn easy sewing skills


Have you ever worked on a project that seems to take way longer than you expected? That is what happened with this book. It is certainly not the longest or most complicated book I have written over the past 10 years but it has sure been a roller coaster of a ride. I have a note pad which states very simply; The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that is has taken place! A direct quote from George Bernard Shaw. It is so true.

I love the cover and I know I will love what is between the pages when I receive my copy. Thank you so much Michelle, Barb and Stephanie from Annie’s  for making this happen. I know there are many of you behind the scenes as well but until I get a copy in my hands I won’t know your names.

Also, a big Thank You goes out to Pat Sloan for helping me out with your delightful fabrics. They are so much fun and are featured in 80% of the designs throughout the book.

The book will go on sale in mid July and I will let you know…..

A new book on the horizon

Coming Soon!

I just received a sneak peek at my latest book. I needed to go over the copy to make any last minute changes and approve the cover. Luckily there were only a few little tweaks and off it goes to the printer. I am hoping to have some advance copies at CHA in Anaheim to show off these fun craft foam designs.

What in the world was I thinking and how did this book come about – well it all started when I dropped into a Kate Spade outlet store awhile back to see what all the fuss was about and why in the world someone would pay that many $$$ for one of her purses. Ok, I have to admit they are very nice purses and extremely well made.  How one goes from admiring high end fashion purses to craft foam is well, just another day in the life of a creative person. It just happens.
