About the Author

     
     Lisa Boyer became a self-taught quilter at the age of eight, patching together a salesman’s book of bedspread swatches with her toy sewing machine. She only took a few years off as she earned her degree in microbiology, worked as a clinical laboratory scientist, then became a sewing-machine mechanic, pattern designer, quilt teacher, writer, magazine columnist, and mother. Her varied interests have led her to write articles on such diverse topics as quilting, hurricanes, vegetables, shoes, and sewing-machine repair, just to name a few. Known to her friends as “the mad quilt scientist,” Lisa combines her love of quilting with her background in science and psychology, resulting in some strangely unique philosophies. Her first book, That Dorky Homemade Look—Quilting Lessons from a Parallel Universe, was written as a tribute to all the lovely, but less-than-perfect, quilts and quilters everywhere. Lisa’s articles have appeared in Kauai Magazine and the Orange County Register, in addition to her regular column in Quiltworks Today Magazine. Lisa’s quilts have appeared in Quilting Today, Quiltworks Today, Miniature Quilts and Kauai magazines. She also made a guest appearance on HGTV’s “Simply Quilts.” Lisa Boyer is a native of southern California. She now lives in Hawaii on the island of Kauai with her husband, a clockmaker by avocation, and their son.

Format: Paperback
Absolutely hilarious! I started reading this book aloud at our mini-group meeting and we finally had to give up on sewing because we were laughing so hard that we couldn't see our stitching any more. The chapter "Quilt, Interrupted" needs to be framed and hung up in my sewing room! Highly recommended for anyone who sews.

Not being a quilter I had my doubts after receiving this book as a gift, but this delightful book had me hooked after the first paragraph. It is one of those books you never want to end.

Stash Envy is a collection of stories that are light and fun, and just bring a smile to your face. I even found myself laughing out loud. It just makes you feel good.

I was given Lisa's first book by a friend for my birthday. So, when I saw this one, I thought 4 of my quilting buddies might like to enjoy her writing. How right I was. They all loved it. In a world where ALL quilters tend to have "stashes", Stash Management and Fun Reading are a must. Great work, Lisa. Thank You Amazon for making it available to us.

Lisa Boyer is so funny. If you are a quilter, this is definitely comic relief that you will enjoy. Every chapter is full of kookie ideas from someone who knows how to have fun. It would make a great gift but don't forget to get yourself a copy too. I also recommend her first book, "That Dorky Homemade Look: Quilting Lessons from a Parallel Universe." You will want to read them more than once.
