More About the Author

Kelly McCants is the go-to girl for working with oilcloth. Known online as both Oilcloth Addict and Modern June, Kelly stays busy running her blogs and operating her online stores where she sells handmade housewares, accessories and oilcloth yardage.

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.

I was so excited to find out that the "Oilcloth Addict" would be releasing a book! I had followed her blog for years and enjoyed the content so much. I pre-ordered and waited somewhat impatiently for it to arrive.... and I am delighted with it. The projects are functional and pretty and her tips on sewing with oilcloth and laminated cottons are so helpful. The photographs are beautifully composed making the browsing all the more enjoyable. The recent boom in designer laminated cottons has ensnared me and I can't wait to try the projects listed in this book with the myriad of fabric options now available.... This book is a welcome addition to my sewing library!

Not only is the book bright and cheery with all the photo's the author is truly a Modern June. The projects have clear and precise directions along with drawings of the steps. Not only will you be sewing with oilcloth but there are projects for laminated cotton. A great project book for those who love to sew!

Cute ideas more of a library rental than need to own. This book has some cute ideas but unless you love, love, love oil cloth this isn't necessary a book you'll want/need to own. Also, the title is a bit misleading. A good chunk of the projects are for laminated cloth and not oil cloth.

This book makes me want to get my sewing machine out and forget about all the immediate tasks at hand (laundry, dishes, and dinner). The directions for the projects are easy to follow and the end results of the projects are fantastic! I have already completed 2 projects and I can't wait to try the rest of them! Kelly McCants has a special way of designing projects that are not only beautiful, but useful.

I've just started sewing with oilcloth and purchased this books for some serious instruction. What I got were giant photos and pattern drawings that look like they were made by a right-handed person using her left hand. The author's directions are at times muddled, and, aside from advice on using a roller foot for the sewing machine, I'll be figuring out the rest on my own.

This book just makes me want to hurry up and sew something with oilcloth. I found the book on the author's blog and couldn't wait until I got it.
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.

I've made quite a few sewing projects with oil cloth, and I'm in love with all the new laminated cottons that are showing up on the market. So I was looking for some more ideas on things to do with it, and this book totally fits the bill.

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!
