Designer Spotlight - Gail Pan

A few weeks back we had the privilege of interviewing Henry Glass & Co. Designer, Gail Pan. Scroll down to learn more about Gail and hear about her latest collection.

About Gail
2294P-88 RedGail PanI live with my husband and 2 of my 3 boys (all now in their 20's) in Upper Ferntree Gully, just outside Melbourne, Australia. I grew up in Ferntree Gully, (so I haven't moved far!) with my parents and 3 siblings. My Mum was a dressmaker so I was always playing and sewing with scraps of fabric, as well as trying crafts such as macrame, paper crafts, and knitting. I used to make Barbie clothes on my little Singer sewing machine. I am also an avid reader and collect books just as much as I collect fabric! I also like to walk, and often am inspired by the scenery around me for both fabric and embroidery designs.

Designer Background and Inspiration

I started designing fabric in 2013 (with Red Rooster Fabrics) and joined HG in late 2017. Mostly I take them from my embroidery designs or a particular idea that I have but haven't released as embroidery.

Interesting Facts
My favorite colour is blue. my favourite food is chocolate, (trying to fix that), I also am a keen follower of Australian Rules Football, it's an exciting game! My favorite band is The Killers. I love traveling and really enjoy combining teaching with my travels
