Hi! Thank you so much for dropping by! I am Jona (pronounced "John-uh") Giammalva and I am a sewing pattern designer, author, and generally pesky fabric addict. I have a terrific husband and 5 above-average children. We live in Arizona and love it (most of the year).

I love fabric and sometimes I even cut it and sew with it. Every so often I come up with something cool (and share it with you)! My book The Essential A-line: Make 17 Flirty Skirts from 1 Basic Pattern was released in the spring of 2013 and you can find the details here. I hope you enjoy my blog!

Feel free to ask questions or drop me a note (I love it!).
