And here she is...

June McCrary Jacobs's original sewing, quilting, and stitchery designs
have been published in over one hundred and twenty books and
magazines and on sewing industry blogs in the past decade-plus in
the United States and the United Kingdom. This is June's seventh
sewing pattern book published in the Kindle Store, and it is her first
sewing pattern book written for children!

June began sewing by hand at the age of eight when she learned how
to sew a button to a scrap of fabric. She moved on to hand-embroidery
and hand-stitching clothes and blankets for her dolls and stuffed
animals soon after.

June took knitting lessons when she was ten and began knitting stocking
caps and slippers for her customers—mostly family members, friends,
and neighbors—to earn money for her creative endeavors and other

When she was eleven, June's Grandma McCrary taught her how to
make a dress, step-by-step, using her grandma's 1967 Brother sewing
machine. In junior high and high school, June took every sewing class
offered at school. She has not stopped stitching by hand and on her
machines ever since.

In addition to designing and sewing original designs, June enjoys
writing Christian romance books and stories for adults. In 2019,
she published a historical adventure for middle-grade students. 

June enjoys reading, writing, blogging, hand-embroidery, cooking,
walking, visiting art and history museums, and touring historic
homes and gardens.
