Anna Marie Horner's Handmade Beginnings at Spring Quilt Market 2010

 You want to talk beautiful and talented? Let's talk Anna Marie Horner.  Anna Marie has 6, yes SIX, children and has recently written Handmade Beginnings 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby.  She was at Quilt Market and check out her booth:

The booth was totally amazing and beautiful.  I loved the sofa and it was so much fun to watch Anna's visitors come by and visit with her....

Oh to be in such good company!!!

 Look at all these beautiful booties and outfits.  Who could not want to dress their precious little baby in these lovelies? 

There is something for every expecting mother out there and some wonderful projects for those with grown children too.  I love the embroidered photos of her children that she has done.  She shares how to make these beautiful photos in her book. 

Just write a book....well that would appear to be for underachievers...LOL. Check out Anna Marie's entire website to see her Fabric Line, Patterns, Books, Paper Goods and Home Decor.... just click here, she is one impressive woman!!


You can imagine my excitement when I saw that Checker Distributors was hosting a book signing for Anna Marie Horner, Handmade Beginnings 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby. I arrived early!!

Can you imagine owning an autographed copy of Anna Marie Horners new book?  One very lucky IHAN blog reader will have the opportunity to own this beautiful book.  If you would like that person to be you, leave a comment on this post telling me who is expecting a baby or who has recently had a baby that you would love to sew for.  All comments must be left on this post.  Be sure to leave your e-mail address if you are a no-reply blogger.  I'll close the comments Friday July 23, 2010.

Smiles,
Kelly
PS.  I can't be held responsible for the spacing of these photos.  Things go wonky when you travel :)

  13. Hi, Kelly--A new little girl has just arrived in our extended family. Her name is Lily Isabel--isn't that pretty? She lives in Brooklyn, NY and I have just been thinking about what to make for her, so this book would be perfect!

  15. Oh wow Kelly, that book is on my wish list. My son and his wife just had a baby girl - my first grandchild is three months old. AND my stepdaughter is expecting a baby boy in October. I can sew for both of them!

  16. This is why I am interested in this book. There are two expectant moms in our family. My niece, who is expecting a girl, and my nephew's wife who is expecting their first baby. We are calling my sister Granny now because she will be a first time grandma. So, we have lots of sewing that we want to do for quilts and more. There are several things in the book description that look good besides the Dad Bag! Thanks for another fun giveaway.

  25. My niece just had a baby girl and a best friend at church is expecting a boy. I feel like I am way behind on my baby sewing. And my sister-in-law and brother-in-law just became great grandparents. pamspinks.blogspot.com

  26. I don't have any expectant moms in the family right now, but I have two daughters (ages 21 and 23) and 25 nieces/nephews who are all starting to get married.....so I can see needing lots of baby gifts in the not-too-distant future!
