Rachel Thomas Pellman

Rachel Thomas Pellman lives in Lancaster, PA, where, she is "grateful to live in an area where weekend bike rides and long walks take me on back roads through meadows, fields, and gardens abundant with flowers, crops, trees, birds, and animals. They fill my mind with beauty and wonder. It is the simplicity of this earthiness, warmth, and basic rootedness that inspires my designs."

Rachel and her husband Kenny own and operate Rachel's of Greenfield, where she designs and produces kits for small wall quilts (both appliqué and pieced), ornaments and punch needle embroidery. Rachel's popular kits are known for their completeness, including all fabrics for the top, backing, binding, batting, embellishments, quilting designs, plus precise patterns and illustrated instructions. With everything in hand, crafters of all skill levels can easily enjoy the satisfaction of completing a project.

Rachel has authored several books including Quilted Projects with Wool and Woolfelt, Amish Wall Quilts, Tips for Quilters, and The World of Amish Quilts.

Her debut collection for Marcus, WRAPPED IN JOY, also reflects her core design sensibilities: "I designed the fabrics to be simple, warm, and homey -- the way I want Christmas to be." Like her kits, the fabric collection makes it easy for quilters to create a complete array of Christmas crafts. "The patchwork print in combination with the strippy fabric can be used to make very quick little Christmas quilts. Cut out some of the little shapes for ornaments or use them to make an advent calendar. The charming little prints can be used for quilts, table runners, and tree skirts. Or, use a yard or two to wrap a gift for a special quilting friend..." The specialty collection includes a Strip-It, a bordered patchwork layout, pre-printed tags and coordinates!

Rachel and Kenny share their lives with two sons, daughters-in-law, and four sweet grandchildren.
