Sewing has been my life-long passion which began in my early childhood. Do you remember the cardboard sewing cards our mothers gave us to practice hand stitching on? I would stitch them over and over until my mother finally let me graduate to a hand sewing needle, thread and fabric.
Both my grandmothers were avid sewers which included crocheting and knitting. I learned all I could from them. My fondest Christmas memory was receiving hand crocheted sweaters from one grandmother each year. She instilled in me the value of both giving and receiving a beautifully hand crafted item.
At 12, I began to machine sew on my mother's old Singer and quickly fell in love with garment construction. Since that time, I have been involved with just about every type of sewing there is. Today, my two greatest passions in sewing are garment construction and quilting.
Sewing has been my roots, but I have found joy in creating through other mediums. My most recent passion has been in soap making, scrapbooking and there is so much more to explore.
