About the Author

Janice Zeller Ryan

I'm Janice Ryan and I live in Los Angeles with my husband, 2 children and 4 cats (I'm not sure who creates more havoc when I try to sew - the children or the cats) . Despite the Cali address and Irish name, I swear that I am genuine Pennsylvania Dutch (and, no, that is not the same as Amish - feel free to ask me about this!) . I've been sewing for as long as I can remember (some of my early memories are of my mom and I designing and sewing clothing for my dolls) . In my former life (that would be pre-kids) , I lived the vagabond life of a costume designer for regional theater, got my MFA in Costume Design from Carnegie Mellon, and then rode off into the sunset to become a costumer for TV and film in sunny California. Although I've had a long-time love affair with my sewing machine (I love it enough that my detour into the dark world of bridal alterations didn't sway me) , I didn't catch the quilting bug until I was pregnant with my son, 5 years ago. In all my free time (ha!) I also enjoy fixing up our 1927 English Tudor home, unapologetically indulging in chick-lit, and exploring my family tree.
