A bit about me. I grew up in a family of seven children and, as you can imagine, my mother had to budget carefully to keep all of us fed and clothed. One of the ways she did that was by sewing clothes for all of us.
I don't believe any of us appreciated the work and care my mother took sewing those clothes for us but I am forever grateful that she taught me to sew. The Christmas my parents gave me my first sewing machine is still a treasured memory. I was so excited.
Over the years, sewing was a shared activity for my mother and I. It was always something we could bond over even when we were having difficulties in other areas of our lives. Although there were stretches of time when I didn't sew, I always returned to it as my creative outlet.
I love making clothes for myself and others, especially baby clothes. Bags and purses are also fun for me. Quilting is my newest passion and the most recent one passed to me by my mother.
My mission for this website is to:
I am so excited to share this journey with you.
I always have created sewn items on my site for sale but I would love to create items with you, that express your style, color and personality. It is so much fun to collaborate in the creative process to ensure that you get the items that you envision.
I have a number of sewing machines to create with. My work horses are a Brother PQ1500s, a medium duty straight stitch machine, and a Singer 281-3 industrial straight stitch machine. The Singer will sew through 10 layers of canvas and multiple layers of leather with ease. It is the newest (to me) machine in my collection.
I also have a serger, embroidery machine and a longarm quilting machine. I don't like to do the same thing over and over again but rather like to learn new skills continuously.
Material - I have a bit of everything on hand but what I don't have, I can always get. Like most sewers, I am a fabric hoarder.
