Lynette Anderson Designs

Lynette has been enjoying patchwork and quilting for more than 25 years. In 1990 Lynette and her family moved to Australia and by 1995 she had designed and produced her first patterns. Lynette’s retail store opened its doors in 1997 and for almost ten hectic, fun filled years Lynette ran both her design company and the retail store on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Australia. In mid 2006 Lynette decided she wanted to focus full time on designing, so she sold the store and now works from her design studio at home.
Lynette’s sophisticated na├»ve design style is instantly recognizable, inspiring thousands of women around the globe with her delightful designs, many of these women keep in touch daily with Lynette through her blog.
The next step for Lynette was to fulfill her dream of putting her designs onto fabric, the invitation to join the team at Henry Glass Fabrics last year came at just the right moment and Lynette has been busy working with the team at HG to produce her first two lines of fabric.
The Christmas Magic line is adorable from cute snowmen to flying Santas and including some great Christmas basics. Look out too for Lynettes newest BOM called Crazy Christmas with its clever use of the Christmas Magic fabric and her distinctive irresistible stitcheries.
When asked where does your inspiration come from? Her reply was,
“Everywhere, there is something inspiring at every turn of my head, alot of my ideas are stored memories from my childhood.
Hedgerow is my first everyday fabric line with Henry Glass and I wanted it to reflect a time of simplicity.
I grew up in the English countryside, my summers were filled with playing hide and seek with my brother in the hedgerows around our home. We gathered bouquets of wild flowers for Mum, caught butterflies and together we learnt the names of the wildflowers, insects and animals that shared lives. Capturing these simple memories in fabric was a dream come true”.
