Born in Prescott, Iowa, as the only girl of seven children, Eula Mae Long learned sewing from her mother. It was her task to hand sew the small squares together which her mother then made into quilts. In high school, Eula Mae took home economics all four years to learn as much about sewing as possible. She received her first sewing machine (a treadle model) as a gift from her mother-in-law and turned out much of her children's clothing. Eula Mae taught sewing classes to 4-H clubs and adults for many years, focusing on clothing design. Then, for a change of pace, she took a course in quilting in Riverside, California, and three years later was asked to help teach quilting at McKinley School in Salem, Oregon. It wasn't until 1989 that Eula Mae began to applique and draw some of her own designs. She found there was a great need for applique designs suited for beginners and older women who had trouble handling the small pieces in most designs. That's when she decided to put her easier designs into a book.
