Renee Nannemann
Many quilters and needlewomen recognize Renee from her publications of the Need’l Love "Threads" series of books which feature at least one quilt, along with wool applique, stitchery, rug hooking and more. Beautiful styling and photography make these project books a collector’s item. The first Woodland Threads book came out in 1995, and the latest release in 2012 was Garden Gate Threads, #26 in the series. Along with creating beautiful fabric collections, Renee has published 9 books featuring the fabrics from her collections. Her own unique color palette is recognizable in each design.

Always a trend-setter, Renee loves to fill her life with things she loves -- "Bella Bliss" -- and wants to share them with others through her designs!

Rosemarie Lavin
Rosemarie Lavin
Rosemarie Lavin is a textile designer in New York City. Her love for patterns and fabric started at a young age. Her mother and aunts were avid sewers, knitters and crafters, making everything from drapery to crochet bathing suits.

"Our Easter and Christmas dresses as well as our communion dresses and bridal tiaras were all lovingly handmade by my Mom and her sisters. My sister and I would search magazines to choose just the right dress style. After a group trip to the fabric store to pick the fabric and pattern they were given to Aunt Marie to recreate the style in her basement. Several fittings later it was done and even more beautiful than the original. Aunt Ann would have knitted a coordinating shawl, sweater or beaded hat and we were ready for anything."

Being around such talented people in her family instilled a desire to choose a creative career. Rosemarie went to FIT as Textile design and development student and completed her education at the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science. She now heads a large studio of artists that do product development and design for a wide range of products under her direction. Her customers include home furnishing manufacturers, children’s and women’s clothing companies as well as textile and quilting fabric manufacturers.

Rosemarie lives on Long Island with her husband Paul and their 2 sons. They spend much of the summer on their boat on the Great South Bay and Fire Island where Rosemarie is able to use the time for inspiration to create her fabric collections. She’s been designing successful quilting collections for Windham Fabrics for over 5 years.

As an 18 year breast cancer survivor Rosemarie is a passionate supporter of the Maurer Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness. She kindly contributes to their organization proceeds from the sales from each of her fabric collections.



 
Sandy Gervais
Sandy Gervais
Sandy has always had an interest in art and sewing. Her mother taught her how to sew at a young age. In high school she made her own clothes and made greeting cards for her friends. Later on she made cards for her boyfriend, who later became her husband. On the advice of her high school counselor she did not pursue a career in art. She was told that an A in high school art does not make you an artist. In 1988 Sandy set out to prove that counselor wrong (or right) and started a greeting card company, " My Dream Designs." In 1992 she combined her love of art and sewing skills and the pattern company "Pieces From My Heart" was born. In spring of 1994, she attended her first international Quilt Market in St. Louis, where she was discovered by Moda fabrics. Many fabric lines later, she is thrilled to be designing fabric for Moda. Designing fabric allows Sandy to work with different color pallets, which is her favorite part of designing. Sandy resides in Algona, Iowa with her husband Bruce and two children, Anthony and Abby. Pieces From My Heart Books and Patterns are available through United Notions/Moda Fabrics.

My inspiration for art started as a small child. I am one of eight children growing up in Oklahoma. My father would paint, draw and do wood carvings in his spare time. I would watch for dad to come home from work so that I could draw with him and watch him do his art. When I was in grade school, my father would let me help him paint store windows for the Pioneer Days celebration. I learned sewing and quilting from my mom. Memories of the first quilts made were denim quilts made from my brother’s old blue jeans. Mom taught me to sew clothing and make doll clothes. Being part of a large family there was always lots of mending, hemming and sewing to do. I also have memories of helping Mom to recover the furniture with the denim sewn squares . I look back and don’t know how they did it, raising eight children, busy work schedules, having a Cub Scout troop, being the church organist, taking us all on camping and fishing trips plus the many picnics that were enjoyed. Mom canned most of our fruits and vegetables, made our own jellies, baked and cooked from scratch and I would be there to help. I guess that is where I get my love for cooking. Nothing beats painting or sewing while you are smelling something baking in the oven. It has always been a dream to design fabric and I feel really blessed to be a part of Moda. It is the same feeling as being part of a big family. I set “no limits” on my art. I just wish for more hours in a day to accomplish all that I would love to do. My many passions are designing fabrics, creating paintings and murals, illustrating books, sewing, wood carving and baking. I like the simple life and still to this day hang the clothes out on the line to dry.

Stephanie Ryan
Stephanie’s art centers around heartfelt encouragement, with vivid, sweet colors, bold, blossoming flowers, and inspirational messaging woven throughout. Her goal? To remind every journeying soul of their infinite potential; of life’s wonder when times are good, and of life’s grace when times are harder. My journey began after a fire destroyed Little Souls, the doll manufacturing company where I worked for 11 years. My time there was invaluable. I started as a doll maker and was steadily promoted from designer to buyer to product manager. After the fire, I was faced with the fact that I had to start over and decided to return to school as an adult student at Moore College of Art & Design, majoring in graphic design and taking additional classes in illustration and textile design. It was the combination of these studies and my love for fabric and product development that guided me to a career as a tabletop and product designer where I developed successful products for several leading companies. With 20 years of experience in product development and the desire to live a life I love, I faced my fears and made the decision to step out from behind the scenes and launch my own brand. Stephanie Ryan, was officially launched in 2011 with the introduction of Floral Fusion, a tabletop collection for Lenox. In 2012, I partnered with MHS Licensing to oversee all of my licensing opportunities so that I could concentrate on what is important to me, creating art and inspiring others to listen to their hearts and see that anything is possible as long as you believe in yourself.
