TerriAnne Designs


My earliest memory of designing and creating was in my sixth year of life.  While Mother was sleeping on a Saturday morning...oh, six-ish, my brother and I enjoyed a lively pillow fight.  Yes, feather pillows, in case you were asking.  Yes, one broke, as you must have guessed.    We knew that this meant trouble. 

“I can sew it!” I proclaimed, as though I had just completed my PhD in stitchery.  With some 20 odd stitches I bound a fist full of torn cloth together with an old button.  The day before, Mother had given me my first lesson in sewing on buttons. 

While I am certain that she was not pleased about the scene upon awakening, I spared us both punishment by my skills.  Then it was doll clothes from bits  of fabric and trims from mailing in Wrights® labels. 

Since then there have been no boundaries. 

My creative spirit is fueled by such masters as Mary Englebreit,

Susan Sargent, the team MacKenzie-Childs and all those with an unbridled  soul. 

To Design is as essential as breath itself.
