What a thrill it is to announce this collaboration! We love Anna – she’s been working with us from nearly day one, making her beautiful bags with our fabrics (which you’ll see below!) We can hardly wait to debut her collection, Rain Walk, at May’s Quilt Market.
Anna is a mom to two crazy and incredibly inspiring little girls. Her oldest daughter had the curliest blonde hair when she was a toddler and Anna’s nickname for her was ‘noodlehead’. It’s one of many nicknames, but it stuck, it’s fun and a little goofy – just like her and her family.
Like many, she grew up sewing with her mom. It wasn’t her favorite thing to do, but she loved being able to make something on her own. Having two daughters gave her the drive to start sewing more; and after discovering the blogging world, she never turned back.
Anna graduated in 2002 with a B.A. in Art. She thought she’d spend her working career doing graphic design, and did so for the first 10 years after college. Working in an office made her feel creatively stifled. After falling desperately in love with blogging and being able to do her own creative thing, she turned her passion into a career. She’s happy to be able to focus on what she loves: her family and creating.
Anna is ecstatic about designing for Cloud9 Fabrics! Seeing her designs on fabric is a dream come true. She can’t wait to put her fabric to use with her patterns and sew up a storm!!!
