About the Author

Sylvia Pippen grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and was taught to sew at a very early age by her mother, Kitty Pippen. While raising her family in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, Sylvia studied tailoring and pattern making and designed jackets made with Japanese Yukatas and Seminole patchwork. Owner of a perennial flower nursery, Sylvia installed gardens, arranged flowers for weddings, and wrote weekly gardening columns for the local newspaper. When her children were grown, Sylvia and Peter sold the 40-acre farm and bought an old 40-foot sailboat, where she learned to quilt in cramped quarters and to mend sails. Sylvia's quilts took on a tropical twist when she moved to Hawaii and worked as a gardener at the National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kauai. After co-authoring a book with her mother, Sylvia turned to teaching and designing patterns and fabric kits full time. She teaches locally, on the neighboring islands and on the mainland, while also managing her pattern and fabric kit business. Sylvia now resides in Hilo on the Big Island with her partner, Peter. When not quilting, she is weeding her garden, exploring the latest lava flow, snorkeling, or playing her flute.


Jan 10 Learn how to hand stitch six quilts inspired by tropical designs...a fine quilting guide that covers both turn-under and fusible applique. Even more valuable-create designs from your own photos: a skill that can transfer beyond the tropical theme. With its collection of full-page patterns and tips on hand embroidery embellishments, this teaches how to choose applique fabrics to create Sashiko designs. May 10 In Sylvia Pippen's new book "Paradise Stitched" Sylvia encourages the reader to try a particular style of hand embroidery called Sashiko. Sashiko means "little stabs" in Japanese. Sylvia also combines applique using her press-over Mylar method but does encourage the reader to try differed applique techniques as each technique offers their own unique advantage. Sylvia says "The Mylar method also makes it possible to applique some flowers in hand using preformed shapes instead of working petal by petal on the background fabric. A completed flower, fish, or bird can also be embellished with embroidery before appliqueing it to the background fabric". The book covers materials you will need, including recommended fabrics and has a good section on the basics of Sashiko embroidery. There are six beautiful quilt project patterns included in the book with option for both turn-under and fusible applique. Sylvia's quilt gallery will inspire you to create designs from your own photos and embellish your quilts using embroidery. There is a good resource file in the back of the book to help you locate supplies, many available from Sylvia's own website. Applique Society, The
