Liza can not remember a time when she wasn't making stuff out of yarn or fabric and thread. Her mother and grandmother sewed and knitted. Her family owned a small town department store and the "remnant" department was her favoritecorner of the storewith the brilliant squares of craft felt, magical drawers filled with embroidery thread and bolts of cotton fabrics. Her quiltmaking began at college where she sewed 25 bandanas together to make a quilt for her boyfriend's water bed. After college she went to graduate school to become a clinical psychologist and worked evenings and weekends at a high end needlepoint shop. She soon dropped out of school, to work full time at the shop. Following that she opened her own store and many years later,when it closed, she became a knitting yarn sales rep. One of the companies she represented was the brand new Rowan Yarn Company whose lead designer was Kaffe Fassett. Kaffe and Liza became good friends and when she took up quiltmaking again, she convinced him to work with her to do a book. That was 1993 and since then the two of them have written 5 hardcover books and collaborated with others on 15 soft cover books.They convinced other friends to start the Rowan Patchwork andQuiltingCompany and it has grown beyond their expectations. Kaffe and Liza consider themselves traditional quiltmakers but with a contemporary sense of color and design
