After years of searching for the right job, Mary Mulari discovered it at her fingertips. Always an avid sewer, Mulari found her niche designing appliques, writing creative sewing books, and teaching.
While attending a local craft festival, Mulari recalls, “I noticed several decorated sweatshirts at the show and realized how valuable these soft, warm garments are in our wardrobes.” She experimented with sweatshirt decorations and began teaching a class on her discoveries for local community education. Since then, she has been teaching and sharing her ideas at seminars around the United States, and publishing books and patterns.
Mary Mulari learned to sew as a member of the Loon Lake 4-H Club in Palo, Minnesota. She has a bachelor of science degree in English education from the University of Minnesota Duluth. Her designs and writing have appeared in publications which include Notions, Creative Machine Embroidery and Designs in Machine Embroidery. She is the most frequent guest on PBS television's Sewing With Nancy. Her entertaining and inspiring seminars at sewing expositions, conventions, guilds, and stores all over the U.S. routinely sell out. She develops ideas for new publications and fabrics, tests products for the sewing industry, markets her books and patterns, and creates innovations for applique. She is a member of the American Sewing Guild.
