I reached out to Susanne Woods from Lucky Spool in October of 2019 to discuss my goals of growing as a technical editor within the quilting industry. I met Susanne through the Modern Quilt Guild and QuiltCon, and when I reached out to her last year, she was generous with her time and replies. Armed with new knowledge, I continued to forge my path as a technical editor.
In late December, Susanne reached out to me and asked if I would consider taking on a quick turnaround technical editing job with Lucky Spool. Unfortunately, Susanne passed away in February 2020, so instead of getting to discuss the project with her in person at QuiltCon 2020 in Austin, the Lucky Spool team picked up the pieces and worked our best to navigate the path forward because this project was so close to being complete. And so, it is with deep gratitude that I can say I had a small part in helping make Quilting with Liberty come to fruition.
In Quilting with Liberty, author Jenni Smith celebrates the iconic designs that have made Liberty of London one of the world’s iconic fabric manufacturers, enjoying unparalleled success from 1875 to the present day. Here, 15 quilts celebrate Liberty’s history decade by decade, featuring these luxurious fabrics and reflecting changing fashion trends and major developments in both the store’s history and the history of design.
The US Launch for Quilting with Liberty will be via Zoom on Saturday, November 21 at 11am CT. Visit this link to register to be part of the launch party and to learn more details.
