About the Author
More About the Author
Kelly has been sewing and making patterns since she was a teenager. After a career in costuming for films and theater, Kelly opened up Modern June in 2005. Kelly put her BFA in costuming to work by redesigning her favorite vintage aprons for the modern woman. Kelly quickly discovered oilcloth and created a line of housewares and accessories with the slick stuff. Kelly and her Junies make the handmade housewares for Modern June in Richmond, VA.
Kelly McCants, believes that there is still a bit of a 1950's housewife in all of us, even if we have left the days of June Cleaver behind--we all want a comfy place to call home. After all, our homes are where we make our memories, and it's where life's celebrations begin. Her Modern June goodies, Oilcloth Addict tutorials, and her new book "Sewing with Oilcloth," are all meant to help you create a bright and happy home that's easy to care for. Oilcloth, laminated cotton and chalk cloth items are her specialty, but helping you to make special memories is her goal.

The book is colorful with excellent instructions. I DO plan on making the storage boxes as soon as I order some oilcloth. There are many projects I want to make.
The author did a great job of sharing her tips on using and sewing with oilcloth. I don't see the need to go anywhere else to learn about sewing with this amazing material. She also shares differences between laminated cottons, oilcloth and chalkboard cloth. She's the first one I've seen to give tips on using chalkboard cloth.
Get this book .. it's a winner.
The layout and design of this book is very pleasing, and the photography is beautiful. There are many diagrams and details for each project, and are very easy to understand. Just about all of the projects are things you would actually use and want to make.
I'm very pleased with this book and can't wait to make more of the projects!
