About the Author

For thirty years, Gail Brown has been writing about how to sew, serge and decorate better—and faster. Her 14 books include one of the industry's all-time bestsellers: Sewing with Sergers, written with Pati Palmer and her latest release, Simply Napkins. She is internationally recognized for her many television and video appearances on Sewing with Nancy (PBS), Sew Perfect (HGTV), and Our Home (Viacom/Lifetime). From Gail's home office in Hoquiam, WA< she designs head covers for hair-loss sufferers, and continues to write for Sew Notes, the Creative Kindness website and her own web site. Sewing—and teaching friends and family to sew—remain her favorite pastimes.

Pati Palmer owns her own publishing company, designs "Personalized Instruction" patterns for the McCall Pattern Company, and speaks to audiences throughout the US and Canada sharing her extensive knowledge. In her career she has worked as an educational representative for the Armo Company, as Corporate home Economist for an Oregon department store, and as a notions buyer. She is a Home Economics graduate in Clothing and Textiles from Oregon State University and was recently selected Oregon Home Economist of the Year. She has been Vice Chairman of the Clothing and Textiles section of the American Home Economics Association and National Publish Relations Chairman for Home Economists in Business. Pati writes for Sew News and McCall's Pattern Magazine.

Sue Green was a serger pioneer, one of the first to travel and teach serger techniques. She entertains audiences with her lighthearted approach to this technical subject, not to mention that she can single-handedly take apart and reassemble any serger! As former sewing machine and serger sales manager for a large fabric store chain, Sue was responsible for designing "how-to" lesson programs. As National Education Coordinator for one the largest serger importers, she traveled the country conducting dealer training and consumer programs She also developed serger workbooks and revised manuals. Sue continues to teach and write. Her newest book is Threads, Threads, and more Threads.
