My passions for as long as I can remember have been creating and collecting, while other kids were playing with dolls I was making them and hunting for vintage ones.

I have been surrounded by artists my whole life and recently my family held a Carter family retrospective exhibition that spanned 4 generations.

I started my career as an editorial illustrator for one of the local newspapers in my hometown of Vancouver BC, Canada and have never looked back. From extensive projects for the advertising and publishing industries, to children’s book illustration, art for packaging and Canadian stamp design my illustration career has been both challenging and rewarding.

Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet
I’m a small town farm girl who spent her childhood playing in the sunshine on tractors and climbing trees. I grew up happily immersed in all things domestic. I’m the middle child of a large family and live closely surrounded by grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. My mom says that I was practically born with a needle in my hand. My earliest memories are of sitting underneath the quilting frames and threading needles for my grandma and great aunts until I eventually grew old enough to make stitches of my own. As a girl, I spent many happy hours designing and sewing clothes for my dolls, crocheting and doing embroidery. My deep love of all needle art comes from the early influence of my mother and grandmothers, who were my first teachers. Now I teach others to create and I find joy in using my creativity to make beautiful things. I draw inspiration for my designs from the beauty of the earth and from the love of God and family memories. I am drawn to stacks of colorful fabrics, pretty papers, aprons, buttons, embroidery, old dishes, gingham and polka dots, sprinkles and glitter and all things vintage.

Lynette Anderson Designs
Lynette Anderson Designs
Lynette has several aspects to her business these days. She started designing and selling her patterns in 1995 under the label, Lynette Anderson for The Patchwork Angel, chosen because her father always referred to her and her brother as his angels. Two years later, she opened a quilt store, The Patchwork Angel, with her mother Ruth’s help. It was in an old church on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, but after almost 10 years, she decided to sell it and focus on her designing full time. As well as having several books of designs published, her patterns for stitcheries, quilts, block of the month quilts and more are now marketed under the name, Lynette Anderson Designs.

A second strand of her business is designing handpainted wooden buttons. They are cut to her original drawings and painted locally to her specifications, then marketed worldwide through quilt stores.


 

Malka Dubrawsky
Malka Dubrawsky
Eighth grade art class introduced Malka Dubrawsky to art and she hasn’t been the same since. She went on to graduate from college with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art. It was being at home with children that pushed her into working with textiles.

For several years Malka worked primarily as a fiber artist and was lucky enough to be included in some prestigious shows and publications such as Quilt National and Visions and Fiberarts: Design Book 7.

More recently she’s been busy making more functional textiles though still primarily out of her own hand dyed and patterned fabric. To this end she has turned her attention to crafting quilts, pillows and other sundries. Malka writes and designs patterns and has been published in magazines such as Quilting Arts, Stitch, and several books including Sweater Surgery and Quilts! Baby, Pretty Little Mini Quilts, Whip Up Mini Quilts, and Quilting Art by Spike Gillespie. Her first book, Color Your Cloth: A Quilter’s Guide to Dyeing and Patterning Fabric, was published by Lark Books in November of 2009 and a second book, Fresh Quilting: Fearless, Color, Design, and Inspiration was released this past December by Interweave Press.

Mary Jane Butters
Mary Jane Butters
Carpenter, waitress, janitor, upholsterer, secretary, ranch hand, milkmaid, wilderness ranger, environmental activist, entrepreneur, author, and trend-setter, MaryJane Butters has worn many hats (and aprons) in her day, but none more proudly than that of modern-day farmgirl. Her organic lifestyle magazine, MaryJanesFarm, is available nationwide and she is the author of four books—most recently, Glamping with MaryJane. The book, full of practical how-to’s and plenty of MaryJane’s signature farmgirl charm, is the definitive guide to “glamping,” a term she coined when she combined glamour and camping by opening her wall-tent B&B, the first of its kind in the United States.

McKenna Ryan of Pine Needles
McKenna loves the idea of quilting as a ’living art.’ " When I design, one of the greatest gifts is the awareness that what I design is going to come to life again and again in a myriad of incredible and unique ways." When she began her company, part of McKenna’s mission statement was that she wanted to somehow touch the lives of others through her art. Over the years, Pine Needles Designs have touched the lives of many. There is something inherent about McKenna’s work that have a healing effect as witnessed through hundreds of letters and emails. Though she is excited about new business ventures and upcoming designs, this is the aspect of her work that means the most to McKenna. To read more go to her website www.pineneedles.com

Me and My Sisters Designs
It all started with that first quilt class.

While taking our very first quilt class together, we discovered that the shop we were taking the class at was for sale. We decided that owning a quilt shop might not be such a bad idea. We didn’t end up buying that shop but a few years later started our own.

Designing and sewing samples for the shop was more fun than could be imagined. Years passed and the quilts piled up. Eventually we sold the store and focused all of our attention on designing quilt patterns, and Me and My Sister Designs came to be.

Well one thing led to another and we became two of the luckiest sisters in the whole world when we were invited to design fabrics for Moda.

Just think… it all started with that first quilting class!!

Melly & Me
Melly & Me
My name is Melanie McNeice and I love my creative life designing under the label “Melly & me”

My adventures in sewing were born only 8 years ago after I found myself a stay at home mum with the desire to still be productive. My passion for sewing grew quickly after my sister, Rosalie Quinlan, encouraged me to give it a try. Only 12 months after beginning to sew I tried my hand at design and with my sisters partnership began the pattern label “Melly & me”.

My goals in design are to create a range of contemporary sewing patterns that include bright and quirky toys, wearable bags/purses as well as fun and modern quilts. My favorite designs are original and fun, achievable in a day, as well as being completely useable in everyday life!

I’m a city girl. I was born and raised in Philadelphia and have now spent more than half my life in New York City, and I will probably never leave. New York is a visual feast and I am continually inspired by its textures and colors. I have always worked with textiles, from my earliest days of silk-screening while studying fabric design at the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, through my work at some of the city’s leading textile firms. Required to travel frequently to mills both domestic and overseas, allowed for an appreciation of fine fabric and a certain technical expertise to evolve. It is now this passion for perfection that i strive for in every collection. At heart, I am a homebody. It’s an old-fashioned word for what people still seem to crave: comfort. I am comforted by elegance and simplicity. My wish is to share this with you, ultimately through designs for fabric, quilts, stationery, china, gifts, and bedding. I hope you enjoy my designs as much as I enjoy making them.
