Where I Sew – Alexia Abegg of Green Bee Design and Patterns
Alexia Marcelle Abegg was born in Folsom, California, on the day Mount St. Helens erupted in Washington – May 18, 1980. Always fascinated with the art of sewing, Alexia grew up watching her mother create everything from bridal gowns to costumes. She studied fashion and fine arts in college.
After trying her hand at photography, production, acting, costuming, hair and makeup for film and television, fashion design, and custom sewing, she found her home in creating fine art quilts and sewing patterns while living in Brooklyn, New York and working at The City Quilter.
Alexia and her husband, artist and fabric designer, Rob Bancroft, live in Nashville with their two dogs, Soda and Olive. She currently divides her time among creating patterns for their company, Green Bee Design and Patterns; teaching; making art; designing fabric for Cotton + Steel, and writing. She is the author of Liberty Love, and has contributed to many books and magazines.
