Loraine Manwaring started sewing at the age of eight
when she received a small Singer sewing machine as a gift. When her children were
young, she began teaching basic sewing to a women's group at church and this led
to teaching beginning quilting classes. She has been teaching various fabric arts
ever since and for years has designed her own patterns and quilting projects.
She has written one other book, All Buttoned Up with her sister, Susan Nelsen.
She holds a degree in elementary education from Utah State University. Loraine
and her husband, Mark, raised their family in Washington State and currently live
in northern Idaho. They are the parents of five grown children. Loraine enjoys
creating quilt designs, traveling the world and spending time with her grandchildren.
fabrics, design; mixing and matching; stitching- and sometimes restitching- are
all part of the quilting process that Susan Nelsen loves. She thrives on
designing and is the owner of Rasmatazz Designs, a quilt-pattern company and long-arm
quilting business. She has published numerous patterns and three other books.
Besides designing, she teaches quilting and edits quilting books and projects.
She might be found at her computer, her sewing machine, or her longarm machine
at any time, day or night. Susan and her husband, Ken, settled in southern Idaho
after his retirement from the United States Air Force. They have three terrific
sons and talented daughter-all married now, and Susan and Ken enjoy the role of
grandparents to their grandchildren.
