More About the Author
I've been writing ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil. My first books were about trees, cats, and Mary Lou Retton. I'm lucky enough to be able to write for a living now (quite often about trees, sometimes about cats, but not very often about Mary Lou Retton). I write for lots of fitness magazines, like Health, Self, Women's Health, Runner's World, Natural Health, Fitness, and others. I also get to write all kinds of cool decorating, design, and DIY stories for places like AOL.com, Better Homes & Gardens, Country Gardens, Do It Yourself, Garden Ideas & Outdoor Living, HGTVPro.com, Kitchen & Bath Ideas, Remodel, Quilts & More, Window & Wall Ideas, and others.
My mom taught me to sew when I was 16, and it's been fabric love ever since. I thoroughly enjoyed writing Sew Retro! Not only did I get to research all about the history of women and sewing, I also got to design projects and them see them beautifully photographed! I hope that you enjoy the book, and that it provides endless sewing inspiration.
I live in Cincinnati, Ohio with my husband, Allen, my 19-month-old, Max, and a new baby on the way. When I'm not sewing or writing, I love to garden, teach Max baby yoga, do Pilates, and run. Find more about Sew Retro at www.sewretrothebook.com, and more about me at www.judiketteler.com.
