Laurraine Yuyama is a self-taught quilter who has been designing and sewing her own quilted crafts for over 20 years. She is greatly inspired by tea, garden, Japanese patchwork, & the online craft community where she is known as PatchworkPottery.
She enjoys combining elements from both her passions of patchwork and pottery – creating dishes with patches of intricate patterns, and quilting three-dimensional teapots and teacups. Many of her whimsical country designs incorporate machine-appliqué, hand-embroidery and buttons.
Laurraine’s patterns have been published internationally in 14 books to date. She quilts, blogs, and sells her quilted craft pattern booklets online from her bright attic studio in New Westminster, BC Canada.
