Ann Pearson--Stretch and Sew

New postby Shellymoon on Mon Mar 16, 2009 7:08 pm

Hi all,
I picked up an Ann Pearson Stretch and Sew book at a used book sale a few weeks back. She had a lot of really interesting techniques for sewing knits. The book was written in the 1970s, Does anyone know what happened to her or her company?

i know that Sew Sassy fabrics closed out their Stretch and sew patterns 2 years or more ago. I believe I have seen them advertised on one of the big 4 pattern web sites. My mom bought Stretch and sew patterns in the 70's and enjoyed them.

Shelley, I checked out the Stretch n Sew web site. I think Ann is alive and well. The note on the home page is signed "love Ann"

I believe that Stretch & Sew still sells patterns on the internet. I have several of Ann Pearson's books in my collection. The designs remind me of Kwik Sew. Here is the link.
