My name is Tammie Bowser and I have been sewing since I was 4 years old.
I remember making my first outfit and wearing it to my pre-school graduation! It was a purple velvet mini skirt with a matching vest!
I learned to sew with a sewing machine in Jr. high school and after high school I selected a career in fashion. After graduating from “The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising” I worked as a professional patternmaker/Designer in Los Angeles for over 20 years.
In 2001 I also stumbled upon an idea for making photographic art out of very ordinary cotton printed fabrics. The ideas were well received and I’ve written 5 books and developed computer software for quilt artists.
I appeared on “Sewing With Nancy”, “Quilting Arts Tv”, HGTV as well as many PBS television shows. I found success in the quilting world and spent a few years away from the fashion industry.
