Around the Bend was inspired by a fall hiking trip around a beautiful county park near Viroqua, Wisconsin called, Sidie Hollow. Both Anna and her family love hiking and picnicking there. A walk around a small lake reveals beautiful treasures around the bend! The prints in this collection are all hand drawn by Anna and overprinted on Essex, Essex Yarn Dyed, and Essex Homespun.
Anna is a mom to two daughters, Natalie and Emily. Her oldest daughter (Natalie) had the curliest blonde hair when she was little and her nickname for her was ‘noodlehead’, thus the name of her blog. She loves to sew and be creative and grew up sewing with her mom. It definitely wasn’t her favorite thing to do, but she loved being able to make something on her own. Anna graduated college in 2002 with a B.A. in Art. She thought she'd spend her working career doing graphic design and marketing, and did so for the first 10 years after college. Having two daughters gave her the drive to start sewing more and more. She fell in love with blogging and being able to do her own creative work in 2009 and started her business and selling her own patterns in 2010! Since launching her own patterns, Anna has also written a book (Handmade Style, Lucky Spool Media) and designed a fabric collection and contributed to many print publications.
