To quote Mandy:
I am a mad and passionate woman
Who makes all things lovely.
I sew every day and
Smother my poor family
With quilts and bears.
I cheat, and I use glue,
I use plaids, and then I use orange
Also,I love folky but do whole clothes.
My enthusiasm is infectious. Let me share it with you.
Mandy has also written many patterns, created kits for her inspirational designs, and has just published several books.
