Leanne Anderson, owner of The Whole Country Caboodle, has been designing kits and patterns since 1992. She loves creating whimsical lines of fabric for Henry Glass Fabrics, making sure that every collection has a story to tell. Leanne’s web-based design studio is located in Nashua, Iowa, a small town in Northeast Iowa where they overlook the beautiful Cedar Lake. Leanne has been designing fabric since 1994, and has been with Henry Glass since 2008.
Her daughter Kaytlyn Kuebler joined the business after graduating from college in 2010, bringing her talent in graphic design to the team. While Leanne still hand draws many of the characters, Kaytlyn brings them to life with her computer skills. They both give God the credit for their abilities and are so grateful for the gifts they’ve been given. Along with the fabric they design for Henry Glass Fabrics, they have an extensive line of laser precut cut appliques, patterns, and kits that coordinate with their fabric. The Whole Country Caboodle products are sold through their website to wholesale and retail customers and through the major distributors to the quilting industry. When not designing, they love spending time with family and friends. Please reach out to them if there is anything they can do to help your shop’s specific needs or to help you promote their fabric in your shop!
Along with their whimsical lines of fabric, Leanne and Kaytlyn have 4 basic lines that coordinate with their collections and are great staples to have in the sewing room. Starry Basics, Houndstooth Basics, Bias Plaid Basics, and Bubble Dot Basics are 4 groups you will want in your quilt shop. While the fabric lines bring fun and whimsy, their basics are the pieces that bring the projects together.
