Exciting Days – my work has recently been published!
Sweatshirts with a Twist is a book edited by the editor of Clotilde’s Sew Savvy Magazine, Julie Johnson. Published by House of White Birches, this book offers “12 Sensational Sweatshirt Redesigns – Changing the Ordinary Into the Extraordinary!” My own ‘Fuchsia Fun’ Jacket from my Refined pattern is included.
At just $14.95, this books is a great value with complete jacket directions from myself and 11 other designers. Order it from me HERE.
Creative Needle Magazine editor Ann Henderson caught up with me in Houston last year at the Quilt Festival. We go ‘way’ back to my heirloom sewing days in the late 80’s and early 90’s, when I wrote a column for about a year in that wonderful fine sewing magazine. Ann challenged me to design a sweatshirt for a child with “Londa flair”. My genre doesn’t include any typical appliques, so here is what I came up with – as found in my Promised Pattern. I love this full page column photo of the jacket.
