Introducing Jeanne McGee, designer of Embroidery.

Jeanne McGee is an artist living in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  She studied printmaking at the University of San Francisco and the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  Her artistic inspiration has always come from her love of the outdoors–the many camping trips she takes with her family and the intricate patterns she observes in nature. Together her background in printmaking and her fascination with patterns evolved into designing fabric. She also has been sewing since age 6, when she designed a collection of clothes for her dolls. Now she’s making clothes for her teenage daughter. To view more of Jeanne’s designs, visit her website here: www.jeannemcgee.com

    I love these designs and colors! Hopefully, I’ll be able to purchase some before long. Hmmm, maybe I should put them on my Christmas wish list!

    LOVE these prints! I love botanicals and blues. I especially love the original print with its line drawings. The color pallete for these prints are great for a beautiful spring or summer project!
