Meet the Author

Beth Oberholtzer is a graphic designer, illustrator, and photographer from Lancaster, Pa. The daughter of a Lancaster County farmer whose Mennonite ancestors crossed the Atlantic in 1727, Beth greatly admires Pennsylvania German handcrafts, vintage textiles, and works of art and utility made from repurposed materials. Although she has designed hundreds of books, this is the second she has coauthored.

Lynn Sommer grew up in a small Swiss Mennonite community in Ohio. Her family home was filled with traditional folk art motifs found in quilts, stenciled walls, painted furniture, and fraktur. She learned how to make crazy quilts from her grandmother, and then fine-tuned the style and made it her own. Sommer pieces her grazy quilts on her mother's vintage 1940s Singer Featherweight portable sewing machine.
