Rebecca Brent Kemp's sewing career began in 1973 with a basic sewing class taught for younger 4-H members. Since then, she has earned a BS and a PhD with studies ranging from patternmaking to curriculum design. Rebecca has sewn in settings from theatrical costume shop to apparel manufacturing, with lots of personal stitching in between. She began writing while still in college, and has edited and written scores of articles for national magazines such as Quilting & Embroidery and Stitch. Since 1987, Rebecca has taught sewing and crafts classes for audiences ranging from elementary-school-aged children to retired adults, including a popular series of learn-to-sew classes. Rebecca's previous books include Redwork from The WORKBASKET, Fill in the Blanks with Machine Embroidery, and Machine Embroidery Wild & Wacky. She has been a featured artist on The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims and is a member of the inaugural SCHMETZ Designer Portfolio.
Missy Shepler has worked as a graphic artist, illustrator, designer, new media coordinator, and technical support person for several book and magazine publishers. In 1997, she made the leap to her own home-based business, where she designs, writes, and illustrates sewing- and quilting-related articles for a number of clients. Many of her projects have appeared in DRG Network's House of White Birches publications. She co-authored Print Your Own Fabric: Create Unique Designs Using an Inkjet Printer, with Linda Turner Griepentrog, and her illustrations have appeared in many sewing and crafting books.
