About the Author
Lynette Anderson’s love affair with textiles began at a young age when she was growing up in a small village in Dorset, England, where her grandmothers taught her to embroider and knit. Patchwork caught Lynette’s attention in 1981 after the birth of her first son, and her affinity with textiles is apparent in her work. Moving with her family to Australia in 1990 prompted the release of Lynette first patterns in 1995.
Her fretail store opened its doors in 1997 and for almost ten hectic, fun filled years Lynette ran both her design company and the retail store on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Australia. In mid 2006 Lynette decided she wanted to focus full time on designing so she sold the store.
Lynette’s sophisticated naïve design style is instantly recognizable. It combines simple stitchery with applique and piecing, and inspires thousands of women around the globe. Her patterns include quilts, pillows, bags and sewing accessories.
In 2010 Lynette was able to fulfil her dream of putting her designs on to fabric when she was asked to design for Lecien Fabrics. After 10 successful fabric ranges with Lecien, Lynette worked with RJR Fabrics for 4 years to create 20 collections. Moving back to Lecien Fabric in 2017 - look for her gorgeous new collections.
Lynette’s books are published by F&W Media and Martingale. With a total of 6 self published books and 6 professionally published books under her belt look for her new releases 'Nautical Quilts' and 'Lynette's Best-Loved Stitcheries'.
