About the Author

About Linda Johansen

When Linda was seven years old, her mother sat her down at a treadle sewing machine and taught her how to sew. By the time she was in junior high school, she was making all her own clothes. She loves to stretch her creativity with every innovative fabric technique she can find, from dyeing, painting, and stamping, to making bowls and boxes. And as of this writing, she has created over 200 bowls! Linda teaches workshops on beginning, traditional, and contemporary quiltmaking; colour and design; dyeing and stamping. Of course, her very popular classes on making fabric bowls and fabric boxes are always filled. Under the company name Johansen Dyeworks, Linda hand-dyes fabric, specialising in colour gradations and variegated, one-of-a-kind pieces. This fabric, along with commissioned art quilts and fabric bowls and boxes, are sold through several shops around the American Northwest. Although her two sons have grown up and left the nest, Linda still has the company of two border collie mix dogs. She and her husband live in Oregon, USA.
