Married 2 children - daughter 14 son nearly 12.
I work part time as a book keeper.
I have been quilting for 14 years - I started when my daughter was born with a Sunbonnet Sue crib quilt but I have been sewing since I was 8 (well that's when I got my first sewing machine). I have been designing my own patterns for a while now - maybe 5 years or more and have been paper piecing since quilt number 2.


In late 2012, Michelle joined the Fandom in Stitches Staff as one of our bloggers.

Computer Science researcher from 9 am to 5 pm... 

Paper piecing obsessed person from 7 am to 8:59 am and from 5:01 pm to 11 pm :)

I put my hands on a sewing machine for the first time in December 2012 and since then I never stopped! I started designing my patterns after few months because, as a computer scientist, I had to use all those amazing software to create paper piecing patterns!

My favorite patterns to design are Alice in Wonderland, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and many other Disney characters.

In March 2014, TweLoQ joined the Fandom in Stitches staff as one of our Bloggers

Mum of two young boys, I’m also a Civil/Traffic Engineer in the office and a knitting/sewing crafty person at home.  Although I have been sewing general items since I was about 8, I got interested in quilting with Jennifer Ofenstein’s Harry Potter quilt blocks.  That meant I also had to learn to PP.  Thanks to Jennifer and her great online tutorials I learned to do both and it wasn’t long and I was starting to design my own. I’ve designed for a few fandoms including Harry Potter, but have done a lot of work on Twilight themed quilt blocks and have participated in a few Twilight themed charity fundraiser quilts.

I’m also known for my love of chickens (I have pet chickens) and have designed several chicken themed blocks over the years.

Hi y'all! I design works based off of the fandoms I adore. Some of the things you'll see from me are HP, LOTR, Pixar, Disney, Hunger Games, Superheroes, Doctor Who, and many, many more. I'm a bit of a geek (punny, right?) and I can't wait to share more geeky patterns with you guys!

I was introduced to paperpiecing through Jennifer's Project of Doom and was instantly addicted. I've been sewing and embroidering since I was a girl, and am just now beginning to design paperpieced patterns. This happens as life permits...I am a homeschooling mum of two amazing little girls. Oh, and fandoms? HP and ST:TNG. And I'm still an X-Phile. :)

Art has been part of my life since I was a kid. Even though I am forever a student of science and work in software, creativity balances my life out nicely. I am easily bored when I am deprived of challenge. So I travel and hike whenever I can and dabble in different activities to keep things interesting.

My interests include: Arts: photography, playing music, soap-making, sewing, painting and cooking; Science: astronomy and geology; Toys: lego, Computer: system administration and programming.

I've always been a crafty person.  After learning to make handmade cards to save money one holiday season I was hooked.  Soon I was learning new crafts such as crochet, acrylic painting, and photography.  In the winter of 2011 I began to be drawn into sewing after seeing clothing reconstruction videos online.  After growing up wearing handmade clothes that my mother made out of necessity I knew my mother had the skills to teach me.  Digging her old machine out of storage she taught me the basics and set me free, and I haven't looked back since.  Quilting came as an afterthought when I saw a quilt kit on clearance in my local craft store.  I now do more of it than any other craft.  I'm still learning quilting basics, and designing basics, and loving every minute!

I have been sewing since age 10. I started with cross stitch and worked my way up to other things. My introduction to paper piece quilting was the Twilight block of the month on the twilight crafts web site. From there I found sewhooked and now FIS. I started designing my own patterns in 2011 after I had surgery and couldn't sew. I love designing blocks, but I'm very fast at sewing them.

My mother was a wonderful seamstress and she taught me how to sew early on. She taught me the basics of paper-piecing, but I was an impatient little kid and quickly got frustrated and bored... It wasn't until after I had gotten married that I picked up quilting again, but this time I found paper-piecing to be delightful! Stumbling across Fandom in Stitches opened my eyes to the possibilities that paper-piecing afforded and I couldn't resist designing some of my own patterns. My husband and our young son are very patient with me as my fabric stash threatens to escape the sewing room and take over the house!

My grandmother taught me to stitch by hand when I was 5. The first thing I made was a comforter for my American Girl Doll’s bed. Since then, there’s been no turning back. I machine stitch clothes, and knit and crochet anything you can name (even making my own fandom patterns). My first quilt was just a bunch of squares of fabric leftover from various projects. My first foray into paper-piecing was after I saw a picture of the PoD on tumblr and thought “I can make that” – a thought I often have when I see things online. Since then, FiS has become a bit of a drug that balances the insanity of my non-crafting life where I’m pursuing a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry. Crafting keeps me sane. Thanks for promoting my sanity.

I'm a 26 year old who doesn't really know what she wants to do when she grows up, but I really love crafting: crochet, quilting, embroidering, costuming, paper crafts and more. (Although knitting seems to be beyond my reach.)

I’m Helen Welsh aka StitchyDragon & I live in the Highlands of Scotland. I’ve been sewing in one form or another since I was tiny & the saying “my heart is fed with needle & thread” could have been written about me! In addition to quilting, cross stitch, & more general sewing, I enjoy crochet, knitting, & card making. A couple of years ago I finally found a use for computers & the internet – exploring the wide world of online crafting! I have “met” new friends & learned many new skills & techniques including paper piecing.

I’m a new empty-nester, wife and Greater Columbia Quilt Guild member who has only recently started quilting when I came across the Fandom Website and fell in love with paper piecing. My family and I are life-long Disney fans but love anything Science Fiction or book related. I have just started my hand at designing and would love to start a blog but I'm like a monkey with two sticks at the computer at this time! Let me learn a bit more and then watch out!!

I am a elementary music teacher who enjoys quilting to relax, I got hooked on fandom in stitches thanks to the muppets patterns and decided to try a sock monkey pattern to go with some fabric I had been given. That was successful, so my aunt recruited me to draft some Dr. Seuss patterns for her, and I have found it a lot of fun. I have been quilting for over half my life. I love miniature and intricately pieced blocks, and have completed a Dear Jane quilt and am working on a Nearly Insane one on and off now in between any number of other projects.

I’m a mom to two beautiful kids and have a wonderful husband. I’m a mostly part-time but sometimes full-time book keeper and in every spare moment, I love to sew. My mom taught me when I was about 8. I started with pillowcases and shorts and then moved on to Cabbage Patch Kids clothes and then actual people clothes. I have always loved the “fabric arts.” I took a break from it, though, from my early twenties to my late twenties and at that time found that I love piecing quilts. In the last few years, I’ve learned how to machine quilt and wish I could piece and quilt all the time. I also love embroidery and appliqué. When I’m not at my machine, I like to cook and garden.

I am a Mom to 2 young girls and in my "rare and spare" time I love working on my hobbies of quilting, knitting, and gardening - not necessarily in that order. I am also a proud book nerd, and have the best f/t career as a book buyer where I can read to my heart's desire and get a paycheck to do it. I've been making stuff since I was very young, and quilting for over 20 yrs. I have a wicked case of Crafter's ADD and you'll often find me happily wandering the craft store aisles picking up yarn, fabric, scrapbooking supplies, or jewelry making supplies that will either sit on my shelves for months unused, or in a mad flurry of creativity, be used up in a weekend. One day I bumped my head hard in one of those craft store aisles and decided to start a blog calling myself the Crafty Garden Mom, a nickname my daughter gave me one day while we were gardening right after crafting together. A few months later I bumped my head again (have to stop DOING that!) and started recording a podcast about crafting, books, and motherhood (Crafty Garden Mom in iTunes).

Amber is a bit of a quirky crafter.  Fairly new to embroidery, she began designing her own patterns in late 2013 after some encouragement and enabling.

Known better for her prolific crochet works and her pattern testing abilities (as well as Secret Keeper  AND Princess duties), Amber strives to learn new stuff every day. (Good thing she works in a library.)

Designing blocks for the As You Wish 2014 was her first (but hopefully not her last) designing adventure with Fandom In Stitches.
