More About the Author

Hello my name is Maria Saunderson and I am a freelance textile artist. I am mum to four beautiful grown up daughters, a proud nana of four handsome not as yet grown up grandsons and wife to a very loving and supportive husband. I have designed textile projects for many of the leading craft magazines, including Popular Patchwork, Cross Stitcher and Crafts Beautiful, my paintings on silk have been exhibited in local galleries. From a very young age I loved to sew, proof of which can be seen in my photo taken at Santa's grotto holding my first sewing set, I can still remember the excitement I felt when I first saw that needlecraft box on the shelf, it felt like forever standing in the queue waiting to hand in my ticket, hoping nobody else would choose it. I couldn't wait to reveal its magical contents, tiny reels of cotton, skeins of coloured embroidery thread, a fragile plastic hoop with a small piece of stamped fabric attached and a fold of paper containing the all important needle.
My first book The Brave Little Ferryboats' tells the true story through hand stitched embroideries of how the Liverpool Ferryboats Daffodil and Iris were awarded the title Royal. It has been a true labour of love, taking four years from having the original idea to completion. It is suitable for all ages, babies and toddlers will love the bright colours and spotting the ferryboats little seagull companion. Older children and adults will be introduced to a fascinating piece of Liverpool history. I hope my book will both enchant you and touch your heart.
'Once Upon A Liverpool' is my second book, it tells the true story of 'The Beatles' simply, through hand stitched embroideries. It is suitable for all ages, babies and toddlers will love spotting Rigby the little submarine. Older children and adults will enjoy seeing iconic moments in the history of 'The Beatles' recreated using fabric and threads. There is a Fab Four Facts section and lots of little surprises hidden in each picture. The illustrations have been stitched and the text written with love and kindness which I hope comes through when you read the story of four young boys from Liverpool who had a dream and worked hard to make it come true.
Thanks for looking
Maria x

I simply fell in love with the textile work in this book ! It tells the story of The Beatles in delightful illustrations and has made my 4 y.o fall in love with the band & music. The text might be a little bit unaccessible for young children but the pictures give more than enough to talk about . A favourite !

Being a collector of any and all things Beatles, I bought this book to share with my grandkids. Most of the ten are Beatles fans, I am proud to say! The photos of the handcrafted fabric images are very colorful and eye-catching, which is a big PLUS for my infant grandson to enjoy with me, although my school-age grandkids also like reading it, as do I, their sixty-year-old grandma. I highly recommend this delightful book for Beatles fans of all ages and anyone who appreciates brilliantly handcrafted illustrations.

We love The Beatles and it so nice to have a companion book to the Yellow Submarine book that provides the back story of The Beatles in a form that is palatable to the 4 to 10 year old set. I was very happy that the cost of the book along with shipping to the US was so reasonable. I have been "promoting" this book with my friends.

Beautiful book! 8 Aug. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am nearly speechless over the beauty of this book about my heroes, The Beatles. Maria is now a new hero for the wonder of her handiwork! I don't know how she manages to apply the tiniest nuances of each band member to make them so recognisable, but she does. The text is appropriate for children, and can be simply adjusted for reading to the youngest child. It's colourful, beautiful, and fun. I hope it holds together forever, because it's going to get a lot of looking at, and that's just *my* copy, to say nothing about the one I got for my 3 year old granddaughter. Congratulations, Maria!
