Reannalily Designs – Giveaway!

Posted on April 7th, by Amy in give away. 134 comments

Hi there!  I am excited to introduce Jen from Reannalily Designs to you!  I asked Jen to share a little about herself —

I’m Jen and I’ve been sewing for people for years.   I have traveled all over the world gathering inspiration and ideas for my designs and patterns.  From Korea,  and China, Japan, to North America, England and France, I have found many cultural and historical elements to guide my interest and creativity.  And LOTS of sewing with military uniforms.  In fact, through that- I developed my Seamingly Accurateseam guide.  The seam guide was released at the Houston Quilt Market in2008.  It has had a great response from the sewing community andreplaces the need for sharpie or tape on your sewing machine.  TheSeamingly Accurate guide is distributed by  And since restarting the “word of mouth” sewing business istricky with every military move, I’ve decided to branch out intopatterns- a business which I can take anywhere.   I have recentlymarried my two areas of work and now have sewing patterns, quiltingpatterns AND patterns for sewing with military uniforms.  I do stillsew commission work on the side and I’m always up to receive militaryuniform donations.  I’m also lucky enough to have the opportunity to dothe technical writing for Art Gallery Fabrics handbag patterns.  I’vehad a few projects in magazines, including Quilt Scene last October.  Irun my design blog which often has projects I’m working on, and like most sewing blogs, I have a collection of tutorials and tips.

For one reader Jen has a collection of patterns and Seamingly Accurate!
