Crafter, Designer

Hello, my name is Carrie Palmer.  I am a wife, mother, chef, cross stitch & needlepoint designer, quilter, lover of graph paper and maker of  lists.  I started cross stitching with my mother when I was in grade school, I took a quilting class when I was in high school and a rug hooking course shortly after.  I have continued to 'collect' hobbies and can't seem to settle on just one.  Currently I am enjoying sewing garments for my young daughter.

Modern Patchwork Gifts 2016

I was so pleased to have my scrappy trees on the cover of the premiere edition of Modern Patchwork Gifts!  These trees came about when I was left with a pile of scraps from a quilt.  They sew up very quickly and can be made in an infinite rage of sizes, shapes, and colors.

I am currently working to produce the pattern for sale.  Check my ETSY shop soon and you'll have your own scrappy trees for next Christmas(or any time of year)!


UPPERCASE  Issue #29  

My first published project in my absolute favorite magazine.  Janine Vangool, editor of UPPERCASE magazine, put out a call for submissions for an issue celebrating books, in all aspects and interpretations.  I had just recently finished my needle books and knew she would appreciate the selection of vintage circus themed fabric I chose as the cover centrepiece.  The magazine is published quarterly, each with a theme, along with a new project of Inspirational Encyclopedias.  They are always accepting pitch ideas and submissions for future issues, check out their guidlines here.
