My name is Wendi Gratz and I'm on a mission to teach people that anyone can sew. I spent over twenty years working in the
children's book industry and the experience has left its mark
on me - all my favorite artists are children's book illustrators,
I believe people are basically good, and I can't abide
Now I live in the mountains of North Carolina with my husband (author Alan Gratz
) and daughter (awesome kid Jo Gratz). We read, garden, play games, homeschool, raise chickens, and make costumes for our annual geek vacation to Dragon*Con.
I teach sewing and embroidery at Shiny Happy World
. Come join us! You'll find free video tutorials and patterns designed especially for beginners of all ages.
Want to know what content circles to put me in? I like to hear about children's books (new and old), secular homeschooling, geek news, contemporary crafts, good food, and board games.
