Book Review from Australian Blog

My book had a great review on the blog “Sew Sista” from Brisbane, Australia!

I am grateful to author Kerry Rushton, who found my book at random and is “a lover of (things) beautiful and surprising.”

See it at this link:

I am also thankful to learn that young seamstresses are being cultivated in Australia.
“Sew Sista” teaches basic sewing techniques to children in the area of Brisbane, Australia.

We can only describe our experience of teaching your girls (sometimes boys) as joy. Our small classes of six (five for machine sewing) allow us to give them time to watch and learn the simple sewing techniques we are showing them. We ALWAYS have fun, we ALWAYS make friends, we ALWAYS finish our projects.

My Newest Book!

 

I have some wonderful news to share!
Coming in September 2014 . . . is my NEW book of 124 dresses and nine patterns for 18-inch dolls, titled Doll Couture!

I designed the dresses from vintage hankies and tea towels, cross-stitch tablecloths, antimacassars, bedspreads, ruffled doilies, crocheted doilies, embroidered table runners, table napkins, pillowcases, placemats, antique laces, cocktail napkins, and a curtain valance!

See too the debut of my own 18-inch doll, which has the same body size as American Girl dolls!

My doll, Truthful Tara, is on the book cover!

You can see photos and the story of Truthful Tara on my website and in my next blog post. (more…)
