I am a stay at home mother of two beautiful girls. I'm married to one of the most understanding men on the planet, who has given me the most amazing gift: a room of my own to create in.
I was taught to sew and pattern draft by my mother. One of my favorite memories is spending part of a summer making rag dolls with her, our two sewing machines working side by side.
With a bachelor’s degree in Film Studies, my professional background is in film, television and ad production. While I love all things creative, (scrapbooking, photography, interior design) sewing is my creative comfort food. Being a slow sewer, I prefer to sew items for family and friends and share my patterns for others to enjoy.
I like anything to do with technology, if it involves computers and gadgets I’m interested. Pattern drafting and blogging became a full time hobby when I realized that I could meld the comfort of sewing with my love of computer technology and programs.
My designs tend to be on the classic side. I like clean lines with a tailored look - like all my favorite old movie stars from Hollywood’s golden era. Once in a while I like to make something whimsical, but I love a classic look.
My goal is to encourage others to dust off their machines and teach a new generation the joy of sewing and giving handmade gifts.
