Amy Hamberlin started quilting just four years ago. Her passion for quilting and design motivated her to open The Quilt Shoppe in her hometown of Rigby, Idaho in 2006. She later started a pattern company, Kati Cupcake, named after her mother who kindled Amy’s creativity as a child. Her fresh new designs are catching the attention of both the seasoned and beginning quilter.

Amy is currently working on a book with Leisure arts to be published in the fall of 2010. Amy has three very busy children. When she isn’t sewing, you can find her at a baseball field, golf course or spray park spending time with her children.


Anni Downs is an Australian Artist who has been designing whimsical patterns and books under the banner of Hatched and Patched since 1995. She is an avid hand sewer with stitchery and appliqué being her forte, using quirky images and a soft, almost vintage palette.

Anni was born and raised in Oberon, a small country town on the East side of Australia. She has always had a love of art and sewing, and after moving to the city and working as a Graphic Designer for some years, she and her husband felt the urge to move back to the country. Anni found time here to develop her own style and, with the help of the local quilt shop, started her own pattern business.

Now, 15 years later, Anni has 8 self-published books and over 100 patterns, and has recently been asked by Kansas City Star Quilts to publish a book with them. Eight years ago she opened a patchwork shop in a gorgeous old Inn where she spends much of her time working with two of her greatest joys - fabric and friends. She and her husband have two children, Samantha and Tim, plus a cat, Munch, and a newly acquired dog, Tillie. Whenever Anni isn’t working (playing???), she spends her time with her family or taking long walks around town with her head in the clouds thinking up her next design. Her first fabric range ‘My Favorite Things’ encapsulates what Anni loves most – soft warm colours along with her quirky images of home, best friends, family, garden, chocolate, shoes, and of course sewing!!



Barbara Jones of QuiltSoup has been making quilts for about 28  years. She also teaches beginner needle-turn appliqué in workshops around the country. She loves teaching. She launched the QuiltSoup pattern company eight years ago and has authored 4 books and several magazine articles to date.

Barbara joined Henry Glass & Co., Inc. as a designer in 2009 and has been designing fabrics for them ever since! She loves colors and thinks designing fabric is just about as fun as making her signature style, whimsical quilts.

Barbara recently moved to St. George, Utah. She has one grown son, a daughter-in-law and five inspiring grandchildren. She loves new challenges, adventures,  most people and is always up for a little fun!



Beth has always lived in the Pacific Northwest. She has loved to draw since she could first hold a crayon. In fact, some of her earliest work was a mural of her entire family, belly buttons and all, on the wall next to her crib. Even then, her parents encouraged her as an artist. Beth studied graphic design at the Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.

Several years later and completely by accident she stumbled head-first into the Art Licensing business, and today her art can be found on all sorts of wonderful products. She spends her days happily drawing and painting in the Seattle home she shares with her furry family, easily inspired by a few of her favorite things: animals, gardening and nature.





My art career was launched at around age 9 when my parents enthusiastically showed off one of my drawings of our Siamese cats. In a household of many pets, they were often featured in my illustrations.

In 1979 I graduated from UNH with a BFA and then landed my first “art” job at Rustcraft as a greeting card designer.  This lead to a career in the Stationery and Gift Industries.

After 11 years of working as an art director at The Gift Wrap Company, I launched my full time freelance career in 2002. The experience of working as an art director was invaluable and gave me a better understanding of the market and how to present my designs. I love designing full time and the freedom it gives me.

I have been working with a variety of companies over the past 13 years, from stationery to gift and home.  I have over 2000 designs in my design library.

Expanding into the fabric and quilting markets has been a natural transition with my knowledge of repeats and love of pattern play and color.

I love the element of surprise in design and especially enjoy making people smile with my whimsical animals and characters.

Dana Brooks is most known for her ability to show a little skin…in her fabric collections, that is!   Finding a touch of a cheetah or zebra print in a bow, a background or the center of a flower is what she does best.  Combining novelty and color brings a smile to her face when drawing her designs. 

Dana is the lead designer and co-owner of My Lazy Daisy.  My Lazy Daisy is a direct selling, home party planning company, which has never been done before in quilting!  Having had 10 years of retail experience owning the Lazy Daisy Cottage, her devoted customers have given her the passion and desire to influence and inspire other quilters.  Her new business venture is helping them to create a home-based business and reach their dreams with their love of quilting.

Dana was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and raised in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Southern Alberta, Canada.  Dana has been married for 33 years to Daryl, who is her biggest fan.  With 3 children and 9 grandchildren, life at home is as exciting, wild and colorful as her fabric collections.  She currently lives in St. George, Utah. 






Debbie is a Scottish artist living in New York City. After studying at St Martin's School of Art in London and specializing in textiles at Liverpool School of Art, she became a freelance fashion textile designer, working with companies such as Marks & Spencer and French Connection. Eventually, Debbie took a job near Manchester, England as an umbrella and accessory designer. Shortly thereafter, she was approached by a New York City textile design studio. After she refused the offer, her art director at the time (to whom she is forever indebted) quickly reversed her decision.

Today, fourteen years later, Debbie is completely rooted here with New Yorker husband Elliott, and their two delightful sons, Eli and Jules. After designing textiles for three years at the studio that brought her here, Debbie was promoted to art director. This sparked an exciting new phase in her career that led her to become a freelance artist once again. "I am more fulfilled now than ever. I feel grateful to be doing exactly what I love doing and I'm excited each day to discover what I'll come up with next." Whether creating art for Christmas or Halloween or Everyday, Debbie is inspired by the subtle, small, sometimes comic, sometimes touching things that make up a day.

A key ingredient in Debbie's art is her versatility. "Ultimately, I hope that the people who buy my art, feel in it the spirit of joy and harmony in the small things in life that I draw upon when creating it."


Debi Hron hails from a long line of artists. Her father started her young, equipping her with crayons and colored pencils, taking her out into the tree-laden forests of Florida. Today she can be found living out her dreams of a simple life in Vermont. Debi's inspiration comes from simple joys, relishing nature in her vegetable garden, treks through the forest and time with family and friends. When not outside she can be found at her drawing board creating whimsical designs for a variety of products.

Delphine is an English artist who works from her garden studio at her home in the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District in England. For 4 years Delphine studied surface pattern design at Art College before becoming a designer at a large well- known greeting card company.  After 8 years, gaining invaluable experience of working in a busy studio, Delphine decided to expand her knowledge and creativity by starting her own design studio.

That was 11 years ago and Delphine has never looked back since. Now with a huge portfolio of designs for companies such as Tri-Coastal, Paramount, Marian Heath, International Greetings and many more, her designs adorn a huge array of products from garden flags to Christmas mats.  When she is not busy painting away, Delphine is kept busy by her 3 gorgeous little boys and husband, not forgetting Milly her cat. Somehow Delphine also manages to find a little bit of time to indulge in her passion for all things edible, including making her own jams, chutneys and gins. Delphine is really excited to be back designing fabrics, where she began almost 20 years ago, especially children's patchwork fabrics, "I love designing for children, I draw inspiration daily from my three, very funny, little boys!"



Elena Vladykina is a new designer for Henry Glass & Co., Inc.  We are delighted to add Elena to our talented gallery of designers. Her first collection is called, ”  Berry Cobbler”.This collection salutes one of the best parts of summer with a combination of berries and a selection of sunny coordinates.

Elena Vladykina has spent the last 15 years establishing her place as a creative force in the home, gift and stationary industries. Her work has graced countless products due to how prolific she is and her unique talent.

Elena was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was there she got her extensive art training in a multiple medium. Today she works mostly in gouache and watercolor. Elena has multiple styles. Some of her work evokes the meticulous detail of her roots while in recent years she has also developed a freer more expressive look.

Elena lived for many years in the cold of northern Siberia. Her work of this time was anything but cold. She developed pieces featuring the warm, bright, and beautiful; daring to depict the colorful rainforest flowers and fauna. 

When she came to the U.S. in 1991 with her husband and son she settled in the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounded herself with tropical flowers, ethnic pottery, books, and music. When not hard at work in her studio, Elena travels extensively looking for further artistic inspiration.

By age two I had already started a promising and versatile art career by creatively expressing my love for animals by drawing their likenesses on all available surfaces. Murals on freshly painted walls were among my first artistic expressions, much to the surprise of my parents. Eventually I was persuaded to limit my creative works of art to paper.

My formal art training began at the age of ten, when I received a scholarship to the Junior School of the Art Institute of Chicago. After graduating high school, I attended the College of Fine & Applied Arts (U of I-Champaign) and the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts where I majored in illustration. Over the years I explored many different mediums and surfaces, eventually developing a technique and drawing style that was uniquely my own.

Although I no longer express my creativity in the same style as I did when I was younger, I still get paint, ink and glitter on my face and fingers! The technique I use to create Sweet PE Tatoes® artwork is complex and the inspiration endless.

Ideas come from EVERYWHERE!

While working, I always have several happy (and sometimes crazy) Border Collies under my chair or snoozing on top of my feet. There are two Cockatiels nearby too; one who thinks he’s a dog and another who thinks dogs are meant for bareback riding. Their antics, along with those of animals and pets belonging to friends, neighbors and family offer unlimited inspiration and opportunities for creativity!

Heather is the designer and owner behind Anka’s Treasures Pattern Company. She started her business as a sophomore in college in 1995.  Since that time, she has published numerous single patterns and is currently working on her 27th book. Her work has been published in American Patchwork and Quilting and other popular quilting magazines. Her signature look combines trendy colors with traditional influences for a fresh look.  The designs often incorporate innovative ways to easily achieve complicated looks.  When Heather isn't working on quilt designs, she can be found working on fabric lines for Henry Glass and Co. and teaching classes.

Heather makes her home near Spicer, Minnesota with her husband Joel, she has two sons, Carter and Maxwell, and a dog Romy.  When not quilting and designing, Heather likes to read, knit, spend time down by the lake and hang out with friends and family.



Jan Shade Beach is an accomplished designer from Harvest, Alabama.  She licenses her images to 25 companies in the gift market. Her wide variety of styles and enthusiasm to learn new techniques make her a perfect match for the ever-changing trends in the marketplace.  Jan’s artwork is constantly evolving.  She is inspired by the subtle, touching, hectic and humorous things that make up a day.  Friends and family all know of Jan’s fun and adventurous personality.  She has tried sky-diving, white-water rafting, zip-lining, etc. and is never afraid to face a new challenge.

“Holiday Frost” is Jan’s first fabric line.  She welcomed all the great advice from the  Henry Glass team and appreciated them walking her through the process.  Jan started out her career as a graphic artist and has always liked the simple, clean, crisp lines and the red/white/gray color combination for Christmas.  She grew up in a house on Shady Knoll Drive and her grandparents lived on the same street only 10 houses away.  There were lots of great memories made there, so that’s why her line is from “The Shady Knoll Archives.”

From the lush Kitsap Peninsula in Washington State, artist Jane Shasky paints beautifully detailed watercolors celebrating the flowers, plant and bird-life surrounding her home. To see Jane’s work is to experience the timeless cycle of seasons; from the bounty of summer flowers and fresh-picked herbs to the delightful visitations of native birds perched among autumn leaves or singing from snowy winter branches in the nearby woods. With every stroke of her brush, Jane pays precise, almost photographic attention to color and detail while creating a feeling of serenity that brings the peace of the garden indoors.

After a career in corporate illustration, Jane turned her hand to designing timeless images for the home. Her artistic sensibilities and product knowledge, combined with her incredible talent to capture the smallest of details, has been called “a breath of fresh air”. Today, she works with many prestigious companies in the gift and home décor industries and her images appear on a wide range of quality products, including calendars, stationery, fabrics, greeting cards, tabletop, home décor and more.

When she’s not painting, you’ll find Jane working in her gardens or capturing the beauty of beaches and mountains of the Pacific Northwest with camera in hand, finding new inspiration at every turn.


Jill Finley has been designing quilt patterns for over 15 years. Several years ago she launched her design business, Jillily Studio. She designs and sells quilt fabric, patterns, kits and notions. Her quilt designs depict her own fresh style using great color and texture with many fabrics. She usually adds a little appliqué to soften and finish each design. Her designs have been featured in several magazines including American Patchwork and Quilting, Quilt, Quilter’s Home and McCall’s Quilting.

Jillily Studio produces the popular notions, Appli-Glue and Poke-A-Dots, along with numerous kits and patterns.  Jill is the author of two books on quilting, Home Sweet Quilt and Stitched Together.  She is a Master Designer for Aurifil Threads with her signature collections, EveryDay Colors.  Teaching and lecturing about her appliqué method and design style keeps Jill very busy traveling all over the USA.

Creating fabric collections for Henry Glass has been one of Jill’s favorite projects. “It is so great to see my designs actually become fabric. I love what I do, it is a joy to be able to create new designs and have others enjoy them too.” Jill loves to spend time with her family; working, playing, eating, reading, gardening, sewing, cooking, learning and just being. She and her husband Randy live in Herriman, Utah. They are the parents of seven children and are blessed with seven grandchildren. 




Kathi started her pattern business, Heart to Hand, in 1993.  She has always dabbled in different media design – sewing, tole painting, rug hooking, jewelry, pottery and even macramé. Fabric has always been her first calling.  She started teaching classes at her local quilt shop, as a way to earn extra money, when her children were young.  Her students always encouraged her to put her designs into patterns.  After a broken finger and knee surgery ended a short career as a court reporter, Heart to Hand began.  Her children are now grown up and so is Heart to Hand.  Kathi lives in a rural area of Orange County, California, where she gardens, cooks, bakes, and still designs sewing patterns with a homey folk art feel.




After falling in love with a sampler quilt in the late 1990s, Kim impulsively purchased the pattern, taught herself the steps needed to make it and realized she was completely smitten with quiltmaking. With just her third quilt, she became the winner of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine’s 1998 Pieces of the Past quilt challenge, turning her life down an unexpected path as her new-found hobby blossomed into a full-time career.

            Kim’s favorite quilts include traditionally-inspired patchwork designs, especially when combined with appliqué. She loves stitching her projects using modern techniques for an ideal blend of simplicity, ease and charm. The popularity of Kim’s quiltmaking methods and her “Simple” series of books with Martingale & Co. led to an extensive teaching schedule for several years, until she retired from travel in 2015.

                        Spending her days at home once again has given Kim time for all of the things she loves most – designing and stitching, gardening, cooking, antiquing and most especially, grandbabies!



Leanne Anderson, owner of The Whole Country Caboodle, has been designing kits and patterns since 1992. She lives in Nashua, Iowa, where her design studio is nestled  in the country overlooking the beautiful Cedar Lake. She works side by side with her daughter Kaytlyn and mom, Jan. Leanne and Kaytlyn are designing some lines together, so keep an eye out for them.  Leanne is not new to the fabric industry, as she has been designing fabric for the past 19 years. Her whimsical characters are generally the focus of her designs, both in fabric, patterns and kits. Leanne loves to work with color and finds a real passion in putting together prints, plaids and solids, where truly she feels that God gets the credit for her abilities. A few of her signature items are her "Caboodles in a Box" packaged in checkerboard boxes, her "Alphabet Soup Quilts" & "Rugs in a Mug" packaged in antique-style tin mugs.

When Leanne is not designing, she is spending time with her husband Ed, or hanging out with her grown children, Shelby & son-in-law Tim, Taylor and daughter-in-law Amy and daughter Kaytlyn.  The absolute joys of her life are her grandchildren Toby, Leighton and Finley.  They serve as her biggest inspiration!

Lizzie B Cre8ive started out in the industry as a pattern company created by two women who share a PASSION for quilting. They have since become award-winning authors and fabric designers for Henry Glass. Coincidentally, these girls also share the same NAME! Elizabeth Hawkins....

Lizzie – (Liz) resides in Pennsylvania and loves the conception and design side of Lizzie B. She takes her sketchbook wherever she goes because she never knows when a quilt might pop into her head! She has a background in fine arts, with an emphasis on watercolor. When she’s not sketching, she’s busy stitching, blogging, facebooking, driving kids to and fro, singing, creating culinary delights, and laughing on the phone with Beth.

B – (Beth) resides in Arizona and enjoys the conception and design side of Lizzie B, but is also an amazing pattern writer. She can take even Liz's chicken scratch sketches and turn them into a work of art. Her background is in business and design. When she's not writing patterns, she's busy stitching, driving kids to and fro, facebooking, knitting, keeping her naughty dog out of trouble, and text shopping with Liz.

Cre8ive – Together Liz and Beth have found their niche in the quilting world. They strive for uniqueness in their designs that take on their fun upbeat approach to life. They look for inspiration in the things that they love and find comfort in (music and umm, chocolate?). They like to dream, laugh, and create...but there's nothing they like more than doing these things together. Meet the Lizzie B Girls!

Margot Languedoc started her pattern company The Pattern Basket about five years ago. It was the love of fabric and my passion for quilting and teaching at a local quilt shop that started me on the road to designing. My designs have always been about simple, fun patterns that appeal to everyone.

I am thrilled that I have been able to connect with so many quilters - from young moms making their first quilt to experienced quilters looking for a new creative design. 

My studio is in the country home my family and I built on what once was a Christmas tree farm in Dunrobin, Ontario so I am surrounded with nature’s inspiration.  You can sometimes even find owls in my garden and deer wandering across my front yard.  I love everything the country has to offer, and every summer for a week or two we can’t resist heading down to Maine to enjoy the beautiful American countryside and the breathtaking beaches.



Marie Cole has loved art and designing from the time she was a little girl. Her Mom recognized her talent early on and was very supportive, providing her with encouragement and supplies. She was lucky to have her hobby become a career. She began as a painting teacher for a small local craft shop. She published a number of instruction books for Provo Craft and later became an in-house designer for them. She has designed products for several companies and enjoys the creativity and challenge of each opportunity. She is so excited to see her designs on fabric!

Marie and her husband live in Lake Shore, Utah and have raised four beautiful children. They have one adored grandson who brings them much joy.



With a background in art, and having made quilts since her teens, Martha found her niche drawing her own appliqué designs in the early 1990's.  She started her pattern company, Wagons West Designs, in 2007 to market her patterns for quilts, wool appliqué, needle punch and rug hooking.  The name of her pattern company was inspired by two of Martha's great grandmothers who traveled West in covered wagons. A nod to the past is seen in much of Martha's work that uses vintage quilts and textiles as inspiration to create new designs with a folk art feel.

Similar to setting the stage for a theater production, Martha enjoys telling a story with her quilt and needlework designs. In her first book, Vintage Christmas, the aura of a glittering nineteenth century holiday is created with a collection of projects.   They include weathered pink and brown patchworks, pink candy canes and mica sprinkled ornaments.

Prior to launching her pattern company, Martha exhibited her original designs locally and nationally and has won numerous awards including ribbons at International Quilt Festival, American Quilter's Society Quilt Show, National Quilter's Association Quilt Show, Pacific International Quilt Festival, Road to California, Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, and The Arizona Quilter's Guild Quilt Show and Projects Magazine, Quiltmania, Quilt Country, Magic Patch and Quilter's Newsletter Magazine Show. 

Her work has been featured in magazines such as Quiltmaker, Primitive Quilts and Projects Magazine, Quilter's Newsletter, Quiltmania, Simply Vintage, and Quilt Country.

Martha has self published two books Annie's Scrapbag and Vintage Christmas.   She is also the author of  Be Merry:  Quilts and Projects for Your Holiday Home, published by Kansas City Star Quilts.

Martha and her husband, Thom, live in Phoenix, Arizona and have two wonderful grown sons, Andrew and Nicholas, and an equally wonderful daughter-in-law, Katie. If she's not sitting down drawing or sewing, Martha would rather be out hiking in the beautiful mountains and canyons of Arizona.




Mary Janestarted sewing at a very young age and made much of her own clothing. She loved to work with fabric, colors and design.  In the early 60's, The May Company and Seventeen Magazine had a contest. The objective was to create a table setting show casing your individual “style.”  Contestants could use anything in the store. How inspiring! WOW!  And don’t you know it Mary Jane won the contest. Her contest success was fuel to her creative fire and served further, to ignite her a love of textiles and design.

In 1993, Mary Jane opened The Christmas Shoppe as a means to sell her handcrafted, one-of-a-kind Santas.  By 1997, Mary Jane switched her focus to quilting.  This led Mary Jane to a life on the road selling fabrics at quilt shows, which made building an internet shop a natural.  ln 2OO8, the Holly Hill QuiltDesigns Pattern company was formed. To date, Mary Jane has designed 26 patterns under the Holly Hill QuiltDesign’s name.  Mary Jane has been published in 2 quilting magazines. She is currently working on a Christmas book with Leisure Arts due out in 2013. Now another dream for Mary Jane has come true. Mary Jane has designed her first fabric collection with Henry Glass & Co., Inc. called “Ninth & Vine”.  Holly Hill Quilt Design is located in Richmond, New Hampshire.

Mixed media artist and author Sharyn Sowell has two studios: one is a rose-covered cottage in the garden and the other is a little suitcase she calls her traveling studio. Both studios overflow with scissors, paint, inks and glue, just like Sharyn herself, who has inspiration spilling into her journals and all the products she designs.

Sharyn enjoys creating with paper, making hand bound albums and journals, party decorations and cards. A river of feathers, glitter and tiny scraps cover the carpet in her studio. You might arrive in her garden to find Sharyn on a ladder stringing paper lanterns in the gazebo or paper tags with poetry dangling in the cherry trees.

Sharyn's favorite manicure is ink-stained fingers in every color of the rainbow. Her art delivers the message that real life is the best fairy tale, every moment a precious opportunity ripe with possibilities.




Like most artists, the passion to create goes back to the earliest of memories. That is no different for Shelly. Homework papers turned in with doodles, hours in front of the television... not watching.. but drawing all the cartoon characters... and not happy just coloring from a coloring book.. nope.. she had to draw her own characters to color. From crayons to clay art just made Shelly happy. That is true today!

Shelly started her career in art years ago with polymer clay. Selling her characters at local craft shows and malls. Later she began designing, traveling and teaching. She has authored four books on working with the clay in which one of the books was with Disney on sculpting their characters. Gradually she made the transition back to her true passion.. illustrating! Now mostly illustrating, Shelly is driven with a vivid imagination and a strong passion to create, color, and paint!
