Anne Sutton started sewing at a very young age. Using her mother's sewing machine and with her sister by her side, she learned the basics and kept going. Taking every class available from home economics in high school to apparel design in college, she expanded and fine-tuned her skills. Once quilting became her passion, her love of applique became her obsession! Anne and her husband live in Northern California. She loves flea market finds and cottage style decorating.
