Do You EQ? Author and designer, Kerry Goulder does!
“I’ve been EQ’ing on my MAC since June 2014. Paper piecing was never something I did, or even knew much about, but so many people were talking about it and it intrigued me, so I jumped right in. I started with an Anchor pattern for a mini quilt I wanted to make for a swap. Where there is a need, there is a desire to learn, right? I finished the design, printed it, finished sewing it and was completely hooked. I started thinking of the next pattern and the next. It was so fun and challenging too. I don’t tend to go easy on myself or my designs. I love to force the envelope and break the mold to do something different, and see where I can go with the tools I have at hand. EQ8 has really helped me to do that, and it’s been so exciting to see what I can make with this program and to challenge myself with some harder patterns. I’m looking forward to sharing many good things to come. “
Kerry Goulder has been sewing for fun since she can remember. After a sculpture class in college, a wedding and two children, Kerry began designing many unique patterns under her Kid Giddy® label, and wrote her first book, Sewing Tales to Stitch and Love: 18 Toy Patterns for the Storytelling Sewist, with F+W Media and is a Licensed Designer for Sizzix. Kerry’s company motto is to “add more giddy to your life.” This is a constant reminder to have fun and to do things that make you happy, which, of course, means more sewing. Kerry lives in Southern Maine with her husband and their two daughters. When she’s not sewing, she loves to run and is training for her fourth degree black belt in Shaolin Kempo Karate.
