About

ellen-luckett-baker

My name is Ellen Luckett Baker. I live with my husband and two girls in Atlanta. In my pre-kids life I worked as a floral designer, museum educator and non-profit fundraiser. I hold a B.A. in Art History and a Master’s of Public Administration with a focus in Non-Profit Management.

I have increasingly begun to appreciate the value of handmade items in our mass-produced world. So now I love to sew little clothes for my girls, make quilts, or work on any crafty project that can teach me something new. I hope you can find some crafty inspiration here.

My books, 1,2,3 Sew (June 2011) and 1, 2, 3 Quilt (September 2013) are published by Chronicle Books. Read more about my books and see images here. For press inquiries, please contact Chronicle Books or e-mail me directly at thelongthread [at] gmail [dot] com.

I design fabric for the Japanese company, Kokka, which is available in the U.S. from Seven Islands Fabric. See my fabric designs here.
