You’ll learn Lynette’s favorite techniques for transferring embroidery designs and for using her Apliquick method of turned-edge appliqué. Lynette’s hand-painted watercolors (right) round out this dreamy book, chock-full of ways to enjoy every stitch you take.


Lynette’s love affair with textiles began at a young age. She grew up in a small village in Dorset, England, where her grandmothers taught her to embroider and knit. Patchwork caught her attention in 1981 after the birth of her first son. She moved with her family to Australia in 1990 and released her first patterns in 1995.

Since then, Lynette has produced hundreds of patterns. One of her greatest passions is teaching, and Lynette enjoys traveling the world to share her designs with her students.

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Ruth, who says:

“I would love to have this delightful book! I would start right off with the embroidery, as it makes a great take-along on our summer camping trips! What could be better and more relaxing? Then when the ‘stay inside’ weather hits this winter, I can do the patchwork!”
