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 activities.
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.

When I was a child, I loved cataloging things. As an adult, I was a librarian for 30 years. I cataloged things every day.
Congratulations on your long career as a librarian! Librarians provide a great service in our lives from birth through adulthood. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, Jeanna. :0}
