join me in welcoming Tricia Waddell

Over the years I’ve done a few projects with Stitch magazine. That’s where our free Ruffled Halter pattern originally appeared, and most recently I filmed my two instructional videos with the team from Stitch. There are two reasons why it’s always a pleasure to work with Stitch: the quality of the product they produce is always so high, and working with Stitch‘s founding editor Tricia Waddell is always a great experience.

That’s why I’m especially pleased to announce that Tricia has recently joined the growing staff of Liesl and Co., the parent company of the Oliver + S and Lisette brands.

Tricia Waddell

Tricia will be leading development of an exciting new brand which we will launch next year. I also expect that you’ll see her blogging here occasionally and posting  in the discussion forums as well.

So please join me in giving her a warm welcome. As you get to know her here (if you don’t already), I’m sure you’ll come to like and respect her as much as I do.

    I miss the Sew Daily emails that you used to write, Tricia. So what a nice surprise to hear that you are with Oliver + S. Can’t wait to find out what is coming out that is new!
