"Fusible Appliqué the Caboodle Way"
Kaytlyn and I are so excited to share our latest fabric collections that we have created for Henry Glass Fabrics. ‘No Fowl Play’, ‘Glad Tidings’ and ‘To Be or Not to Be’ are the collections we will be sharing. Learn the inspiration behind the design process and how we go about creating a new collection. We will be showing quick easy techniques in putting together your appliqués, as well as tips in finishing projects. We will also be sharing ideas of how to create your own gift packaging using fusible appliqués plus make-and-take projects that will be super simple.
Introducing the Whole Country Caboodle:
The Mother - Daughter Team of Leanne and Kaytlyn Anderson
The Mother-Daughter team from The Whole Country Caboodle loves creating whimsical lines of fabric for Henry Glass Fabrics, making sure that every collection has a story or message to tell. It’s their hope that their collections either inspires or makes someone happy. They love designing with children in mind. The business is located in Nashua, Iowa, where the design studio is nestled out in the country overlooking the beautiful Cedar Lake. Leanne has been designing patterns, kits and fabric for 25 years, the past 10 years with Henry Glass Fabrics. Kaytlyn joined Leanne in the business after graduating from college in 2010, bringing her talent of graphic design to the team. While Leanne still hand draws many of her characters, Kaytlyn brings them to life with her skills at the computer. Kaytlyn is the force behind the website, creating and designing promotional materials, pattern fronts and anything else needed for The Whole Country Caboodle. They both give God the credit for their abilities and are so grateful for what they get to do. When not designing, they love spending time with family and friends.
