2010 SCHMETZ Portfolio Designer - Linda McGehee

Linda's Favorite Needle:  Ask and Linda will tell you Topstitch . . . Metallic Twin . . . Jeans . . . Universal. . . . and . . . well you get the idea.  Linda has a favorite needle for every type of work she does!

Linda has a diverse sewing background from garments to handbags, piecing to heirloom, surface manipulation to combining techniques.  She travels the globe demonstrating and lecturing from her many books and patterns.

Bags Galore is Linda's newest DVD.  Get motivated to create your own handbags.  Linda shares informative techniques to create an array of handbags.  She covers products, basic construction, pockets, straps, snaps, zippers - everything to make dynamite bags!

Linda loves zippers.
I adore this black lace zipper with the dainty floral zipper pull.

My favorite is the clear zipper above in an array of neon colors. - I have an idea for a wrap using that neon yellow! - I just need more time for sewing up all my ideas!

You will find Linda at a variety of sewing shows around the country.  Her company name is Ghee's.  Check out her booth for terrific handbag hardware - high quality hardware -  frames, clips, feet.  If you can't travel to a show, look for her teaching in a store near you or check her website at
