books I have written

Bend-the-Rules Sewing: The Essential Guide to a Whole New Way to Sew

This is my first book and it's geared to beginning sewers who like to try projects with a twist. If conventional sewing directions have never made sense to you, my book might help! It's written in a casual way with plenty of tips and tricks to help you out.

The first edition has some errata (oops!). This will take you to a group on flickr with errata, questions, tips, and help.

Want to see what people have made? This same group on Flickr has thousands of photos of finished projects sewers have made from my book. So cool!

Bend the Rules with Fabric: Fun Sewing Projects with Stencils, Stamps, Dye, Photo Transfers, Silk Screening, and More

This is my second book, all about customizing your fabric to make it truly yours. There are plenty of sewing projects along with surface design techniques to keep you busy for a long time.
There is a group on Flickr for show and tell, so please take a look and upload any projects you have done from the book!
