Cathy Van Bruggen
Applique the Easy Way

 October 11, 2016

I began sewing at a very early age.  
I remember sewing doll clothes by hand while watching my mother create costumes. Later, I was hired by Catalina Swimwear as a production manager and sample maker. Unable to work outside the home while raising five children, I designed custom bridal wear. In 1970, we developed a family business called The Outfitters, a retail chain for women's clothing. When I retired in 1995, I began quilting as a hobby. By using timesaving techniques in quilt making, I developed Appliqué the Easy Way™. I enjoy creating botanically correct appliqué featuring flowers, birds, and woodland creatures. My workshops feature all my original designs and published patterns.
