About the Author
Getting to know Linda Lum DeBono
When you want fresh ideas and modern color, you want designs by
Linda Lum DeBono.
"I'm always looking for the next thing in fashion and I like
to stay just ahead of the trend", says Linda. "New colors
always seem a little bit out there or even a little crazy, but they
can also be more subtle while the style itself leans toward the
fashion-forward end of the scale. The best look is one that expresses
what's hot without going over the top."
When Linda isn't drawing bold new patterns or spending time with
her husband, Reno, and their two young sons, she can be found working
on textile designs. Her most recent lines of fabrics by Henry Glass
& company features a dynamic blend of geometric and floral prints
in exciting new hues.
All this design activity makes it hard to believe that Linda hasn't
always known how to apply scissors and thread to fabric. Linda discovered
her creative skills when Reno's employment brought their family
to New Jersey from Canada, and Linda left behind a career in the
pharmaceuticals industry. To stay busy, the young mom took a couple
of quilt classes and discovered a new passion for sewing and designing.
These days, Linda's work can be seen in a variety of crafting magazines
