    We're stoked to have Natalie Barnes from Beyond the Reef Patterns joining us as a new Maker here at Janome. 

    We sat down with Natalie to learn about some of her favorite things, how she recharges, and even what spurred her to learn to quilt! (We think you'll want to know how that came about!) Read below for some of our interview:

    Natalie's Bio:

    Natalie is the owner/designer for beyond the reef, a quilt pattern-design company that she started one rainy north shore morning on a lanai in Hanalei, Kauai, while drinking coffee with author Jill Marie Landis. As a little girl, Natalie learned to sew, knit, and crochet from her grandmother. After a successful career in the demanding commercial/corporate interior design field in Los Angeles, Natalie decided it was time to live a new dream, and put her talents to work in another area. She has never looked back. She is a fabric designer for Windham Fabrics.  A Janome Maker, and a contributor to Aurifil and Olfa.  She is author of A Modern Twist, by Martingale/TPP with contributions by Angela Walters.  And you'll find her entertaining tutorials on the new video series, STITCH!, or teaching at a guild or retreat near you.

    Having always lived on the beach, Natalie draws her inspiration for color and design from the sea, the sky, and the land. These days you’ll find Natalie in the studio in sunny Southern California, or out and about with her dog, Stitch. 

    See more of her inspiration on her site, Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest.
