Hello and welcome to my online nook! I'm Diane Gilleland, and I've been here since 2005. I'm a designer, writer, and producer of crafty things. I've never met a craft I didn't love – though it should be said, I have only an uneasy détente with knitting. At the moment, I'm deep into plastic canvas and English paper piecing, but I'll try any craft once.

Work I've Done:

• I wrote Kanzashi In Bloom and co-authored Quilting Happiness. My next book is coming out in Spring 2015 – which will be here before you know it.

• I've had craft projects published in several magazines: Craft Stylish special interest publications, Sew Stylish, Woman's Day, Stitch, and Sew News.

• I've also done craft project design for websites including CRAFT, CraftStylish, and Spoonflower.

• ...Aaaand these are a few of the craft books where my work has appeared.

I live in Portland Oregon, where I explore locally-roasted coffees and take photo safaris to farmer's markets. There's a better-than-average chance that I'm watching either Mad Men or The West Wing right now.

...And if you'd like even more info on me, I have this page of interviews I've done.
