stitching and drawing make my heart smile

Working with Lecien fabrics Lynette created 10 very popular fabric collections with names such as 'Scandinavian Christmas', 'Hollyhock Cottage', 'Follow My Heart' and 'Wildflower Wood' . Lynette now designs for RJR Fabrics.

Her sophisticated naïve design style is distinctive and combines simple stitchery with applique and piecing, making it attractive to embroiderers and quilters worldwide.

With inspiration for her patterns coming from her childhood adventures, evening walks with her husband Vince and dog Hugo along the beach near their current home, as well as everyday life, Lynette’s designs are as vast as her imagination and always incorporate a little touch of whimsy.

From a memory or a chance encounter Lynette first draws out her ideas, often without an end product in mind. She says that sometimes a quilt will start with an idea for just one block, and other times she will just start drawing and get an idea of what product the design is best suited to as she goes along.

Lynette’s fabric, buttons and designs are unique in that they always start with her drawings before being transferred onto computer to be finalised. Take her sought after handmade button range for example.  Each limited edition button is machine cut and hand finished and painted in Australia from Lynette’s designs.

These days Lynette splits her time, working and designing from her home or her nearby studio on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Lynette also enjoys traveling around the world teaching in countries including the US, Japan, Canada, and throughout Europe.

Lynette Anderson
was never destined to have a normal office job.

From her rural upbringing exploring the woods of Dorset, England, to her first job spinning dog hair for doting owners, she has always looked at things a little differently and has been just a little obsessed with the way things look and feel.

Add to that the textiles, art and craft skills she learned from a very early age under the instruction of her mother Ruth and both her grandmothers, and it is no surprise that Lynette has been as successful as she has. From her maternal grandmother, Lynette learnt to knit and from her paternal grandmother she learnt embroidery, drawing and painting. Lynette and her brother were kept busy as children outdoors and indoors with a wide range of craft projects.

Later she did a short course in patchwork, as a way of finding a new hobby while her four boys were small, and her interest soon grew into a thriving teaching and pattern designing business which she continued after migrating with her family to Australia in 1990.

Since 1995 Lynette has published nine books, with two more on their way as well as creating countless patterns including quilts, pillows, bags and sewing accessories.
