About

Surrounded by fabric!

About Me: I have always been surrounded by sewing or crafting. My mother, grandmother, my aunts and my sister were always creating something either by quilting, weaving, sewing, cooking and gardening. It was only natural that I would pick up some of this.

My love of sewing really blossomed when I was in high school. I made my prom dress for both junior and senior proms. I see the pictures now and laugh! They were gingham - one year orange and the next year purple.

I grew up in North Dakota and Nebraska. During those long, cold winters, I would find a design that I liked in a magazine and copy the idea but make it my own. I watched Nancy Zieman and Shirley Adams on PBS and learned more than I could in any classroom. The 4th picture is one of the shirts inspired by a picture in a magazine. It is a little funky on the bottom but worn tucked in with a black Pendleton skirt looked awesome.

About AnnieKDesigns: A job transfer to NYC afforded me the opportunity to study at Parsons School of Design. Selling my items started when one of my BFF's got married and bought a house. As a present I made a beautiful velvet and satin tree skirt with coordinating mantle cover. One of my co-workers said I could sell them at Bergdorf's for $500 each. I didn't pursue that but when Etsy came along, I thought I would test the waters.

I like to sew a wide variety of items. Sewing the same thing over and over is monotonous. My specialty is Christmas tree skirts, in all colors, shapes and sizes.

I recently organized my fabric on comic book boards and have around 700 fabrics. Yes, 700! I love how fabric can transform your wardrobe, your decor and your style. I like bright and bold colors but sometimes softer tones work very well too.

I am a commercial property manager during the day and losing myself in sewing provides the perfect creative outlet! I love dogs and my beloved Cody crossed over the rainbow bridge in May 2013. He was a Black Lab/Weimaraner who was incredibly intelligent, a Houdini and a character. Copper, my English Springer Spaniel, is adorable, sweet and hilarious.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for shopping at AnnieKDesigns.
