Author  Bonnie Sabel & Louis-Phillipe O'DonnellAbout the Authors

Bonnie was born in Michigan, spent her young-adult years in Southern California and has lived in the Pacific Northwest for more than 30 years. She has a BS degree in management and recently retired from an accounting career, but her heart has always belonged to designing with fabric. It has been her good fortune in life to have a favorite aunt who is an artist and quilter. Aunt Sylvia is a graduate of the Chicago Art Institute. Over the years she has encouraged Bonnie to craft and sew and to see things with an artist's eye. Bonnie's quilting friend Judy Foster has also given significant encouragement over the years.

In the 1980s, several pieces of Bonnie's original wearable art were juried into national shows, including two appliquéd butterfly jackets that were juried into the prestigious annual "Designed to Wear" event for the Oregon School of Arts and Crafts. During the 1990s, her focus turned more to quilting bed-size quilts and original wall quilts. The wall quilt mentioned in the description of Mauna Loa was selected for a Viewer's Choice Award at the Northwest Quilter's Show the year it was made. Many pieces of her original wearable art and art quilts have been sold at shows and galleries.

Bonnie executed the design and construction of the postcards in this book and also contributed the written descriptions and instructions.

Phil was born on a farm in the Acadian St. John River Vallley, which separates Maine in the United States from New Brunswick in Canada. He was part of a family of six boys, with French-Canadian and French-Irish-American parents. After serving in the Korean War, graduating from the University of Maine with a BS degree in electronics engineering and earning a M.B.A. from Pepperdine University, he enjoyed a very successful career in electronic design, management and marketing. He went on to establish a group of computer companies that included the largest and most successful mail-order computer company in the United States in the 1980s.

Without Phil's entrepreneurial mind-set, the book Positively Postcards would not have become a reality.
