Quick Blurb

I've been sewing for over 60 years, and now I'm willing to part with some of my treasures, accumulated over the years.


Sewing, costuming, reading, cats, jewelry making, clipping magazines, and buying fabric!

Skills and Techniques

Perfectionist about my sewing and anything else I attempt.

Get to Know

A seamstress and designer for over 50 years, I am a compulsive packrat, and can not throw anything away, so my collections of fabrics, rubber stamps, beads, and whatever else has interested me over the years, can be found throughout my 4 story (includes basement and attic) Victorian home. I worked as a fashion designer, fashion copywriter, window dresser and newspaper paste-up artist prior to becoming an art teacher, this last occupation continuing for 28 years. I retired 20 years ago (early retirement, that is) and haven't looked back. My other studio, Eclectic Oddities, houses my various wares, and shows evidence of some of the subjects I taught my high school students and continued to pursue after I retired.
