About the Author
About Bari J. Ackerman:
Whether it's textile art, graphic design or writing, Bari J. Ackerman always had her hands in something creative. When she made the decision to stay home after the birth of her two daughters, she discovered her talent and passion for collage and jewelry design. In 2005, she made her first handbag and subsequently launched her self-named business, Bari J, (the J is for Jill, her middle name.) Her company has grown to include a wide variety of sewing patterns, as well as three fabric lines. Her fourth is due out this spring from Japanese fabric manufacturer, Lecien. Her mission is to create vintage-inspired looks for modern women. Bari's designs have a look and feel that convey a sense of history and a whimsical charm. For more information, visit her blog at
