Welcome to our new blog, See How We Sew.
We are a “collective” of four experienced craftswomen—Christie Batterman, Laura Nownes, Jennifer Rounds, and Darra Williamson—who share a passion for quilting and other fiber arts.
Among us, we’ve made hundreds of quilts; won awards for our work on the local, regional and national level; written and edited numerous best-selling quilting books, as well as articles about quilting and quilters, sewing, and home décor for a wide range of publications; taught quilting all over the US, abroad, and on cruise ships; judged quilt shows; played key roles at a busy quilt shop; designed patterns and continue to own our own pattern companies…even run the editorial department for a major quilt-book publisher. But most of all, we love to sew, and we’re looking forward to exploring new ideas with you!
As we start, our goal is to bring you something new, exciting and useful twice a week: on Tuesday and Friday. Once we get rolling, our posts will become more frequent. Since blogs are all about sharing—we welcome your suggestions and comments. Don’t be shy about telling us what you think and what you’d like to see.
