About ShinersView

Sales 2,881
On Etsy since 2009

Mid-century Modern ... that's it ... that's my style ...

I am Lisa and I recently moved to Worcester, England with my British husband and our English Setter, Finnegan.

I am the daughter of an amazing seamstress who made us beautiful clothing when we were kids. While she tried hard to teach me to sew when I was younger, I simply didn't have any interest. Fast forward 30 years and I am now a self-taught quilter, seamstress and pattern designer.

It started back in 2009 when I wanted to make some throw quilts to use in a new cabin that we were building in the woods. I made over 100 quilts for family and friends over the next 8 years as I worked full time but found relaxation and rejuvenation in quilting. When I retired in 2016, I expanded my interests and began selling window awnings for tear-drop trailers in an Etsy shop.

I have had to give up the T@b window awning business now that we are in the UK, but am getting more engaged with patterns as I settle in.

I am often asked why "Shinersview"? Shiner was our first English Setter—she was an optimistic girl, ALWAYS convinced the perfect bird was just around the corner, or that a snake was hiding under a rock, or her humans must clearly be wanting to throw a frisbee or a stick for her if they just had one in their hands. She seemed to move through her day with unbridled energy. We used to joke in my family that like would be so simple if we just had "Shiner's view". So when I first opened my Flickr account way back when ... I was trying to look at things through Shiner's view of the world ... and the name just kinda stuck.
