I’ve always been a crafty dork. I remember a childhood filled with pottery classes and beading looms…with hours and hours spent between the tall bookshelves of my local library, always in the craft aisle, hunched over and devouring a fat stack of books on embroidery, or drying flowers, or sewing…anything and everything I could get my hands on.
Crocheting pillows with great grandma…if only I’d spent less time winding yarn and more time rescuing that hair!
I first learned to sew by making garments with my mother to enter in the county fair. How eternally grateful I am to her for teaching me to sew at such a young age!
Caught the quilting bug soon thereafter when I joined a local charity quilting group around 12 or 13. Just me & a slew of older ladies in a church basement strip piecing quilts for victims. Like I said, I was super cool in Jr. High.
Meet my day job!
And here’s my cozy basement sewing room!!!
Well, that’s me in a nutshell! Thanks for stopping by! Do say hello! Makes my day when I hear from you!
