Anna Maria Horner in Los Angeles!!

She was here a couple weeks ago....  Can you believe it? Not only did I get to meet my favorite designer, but I also got to take a class with her. She taught a Multi Tasker Tote class and it was fantastic. I've always wanted to go to a Heather Ross weekend sewing workshop but could never get in! She has been a guest teacher on several occasions.

I used to sew a little in high school and stopped when I started college.  I began sewing again after I had Taylor. I began to shop for fabric online and discovered designer fabric! I found this Chocolate Lolliop print and fell in love! I quickly realized that there was a coordinating collection and had to have it! This was the collection that got me hook, line and sinker! I now have a terrible fabric addiction....

After class, she hung out and spoke to our guild. She talked about how she got started. Showed some of her sketches, clothes and of course, quilts.

The funniest part is that she doesn't really consider herself a 'quilter'. Oh, she has a new line coming out in May called 'Field Study'. We got a sneak preview and it's amazing!

Well Anna, I enjoyed my class with you, loved hearing you speak about your career / life.  I don't know how you do it with all those kids!!!  You are truly an inspiration! Please come back to LA soon!



  1. Oh that looks like you had a great time!!! Did you make a bag? where is it?

    1. Drags, Angela! I was hoping no one would ask me that! LOL! I didn't finish it in time. I promise to post it as soon as I do. ;)
