Apologies for the Slowness.

Just a quick note to let you all know that I have been overloaded lately and have had almost no time to attend to the site. If you are waiting for an email, I apologize, please bear with me! I really thought I would be able to get the Quilt Market posts done in less [...]


True Up is five years old today! Clearly I had done my taxes early in 2008 because no way I would have picked this day otherwise. It has been quite a journey, many ups and downs, and though things are leaner than they once were, and maybe blogging and RSS and forums are dead or [...]

See You Next Week!

I am getting my quilt market schedule and assignments ready for my six-count-’em-six gracious assistants, so I will have to bow out of posting this week.

On top of it we’re treating one of our dogs for heartworm, so we have to make sure he gets no excitement through all the movers and doors opening and closing and leashes being brandished. Then, today, our preschooler came down with the [...]

Why, It’s a Forum!

The book is coming very soon! I made forum to serve as its companion, a place to go to ask questions about fabric design, to share your work, to find new resources and inspiration, and to be whatever else it morphs into. Once the book is out I plan to post downloads there, like free [...]

Who Wants Postcards?

I can hardly believe it, but A Field Guide to Fabric Design will be out in just a couple months! Stash sent me a huge box of postcards so I can get my own promotions efforts rolling. If you’re planning on carrying the book in your shop and want to create some advance buzz, or [...]

Theodore Jones Kight

Introducing Theodore Jones Kight, born Monday, July 18, 2011, at 1:52pm, and weighing in at 9 lbs, 10 oz. The delivery was such a cinch compared to our first that I’m still a bit shocked by it all! We got home Tuesday evening and have started our transition to being a family of four. Theo [...]
