Mary Mulari

Meet Mary

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.
