Sew Straight

When I was a teenager I had the privilege of learning how to ride a horse, and it was my passion. However, throughout the 10-or-so years I rode and competed, every coach who taught me and clinic I took kept coming back to the basics - how to ride a circle, how to ride a straight line, and how to balance impulsion and collection. It's not because I sucked so badly that they had to keep teaching basics, but because at every level of riding, from the very beginner to the most advanced dressage professional, these basics are the foundation that you keep coming back to and perfecting, like an endless circle.

Moonlit Jasmine for Ella

I knew I was hooked even before I began, and now it's official - I completed my first quilt, no more UFOs (un-finished objects), UQOs(un-quilted objects) or day-dreaming while looking over all of my beautiful, beautiful materials, as fun as that may be.

ABOUT

Annette Fehr ~ Lyon, France

I come from a very artsy and craftsy family from the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. Following a degree in Urban Planning & Design, I first moved to Zurich, Switzerland, before moving to the Beaujolais wine region of France where I'm constantly inspired by the natural beauty surrounding me. I took up knitting several years ago as a way to relax, reduce stress and as a child-compatible activity. I've experimented with all kinds of arts & crafts throughout my life including drawing, painting, calligraphy, architectural drawing, sculpting, jewellery-making, photography, quilting, embroidery, and crochet, and I was instantly fascinated by the infinite design possibilities, vibrant colour combinations and touchableness offered by hand-knitting. I dream of one day combining my passion for knitting with yarn possibilities appropriate for the hot climates which I love so much.
