Linda Lee

The Sewing Workshop
Owner

Linda Lee is the owner of The Sewing Workshop Pattern Collection, a group of patterns for distinctive garments using innovative sewing techniques. Linda writes for Threads, Sew News and Stitch magazines. She travels the country teaching fine sewing techniques and the art of combining beautiful fabrics and distinctive design in garment and home decorating creations. Using her background as a licensed interior designer from Kansas State University and a member of ASID since 1974, she has written fourteen books relating to garment sewing and interiors. Sew Sensational Pillows won the Independent Book Award in the Craft and Hobby category, and Sew Easy won an honorable mention by the Independent Publisher Book Awards for Most Original Design in their "Ten Outstanding Books of the Year" awards.

Starting with making and selling felt hats in sixth grade, Linda's business ventures have followed - from a life-long career in interior design to producing avant garde sewing patterns for the adventurous sewer. One pillow-making project ultimately led to 14 books, television appearances on HGTV and traveling and teaching the fine art of combining beautiful fabrics and innovative sewing techniques for both garments and interiors.

  • Sewing Beautiful Pillows
  • Scarves to Make
