Get to Know

I have been sewing since I was a little girl when grandmother piqued my interest. She taught me to sew in her back bedroom sewing area. I then moved on to sharpen my skills in the costume shop at college and then a tailoring shop later in life. Always learning new things I learned smocking when my Mother gave me her Pullen pleater and tend to put a unique touch on every creation.

I pride myself on creating beautifully finished pieces of art. I finish seams with an enclosed French seam whenever possible or a serged edge. I most often use cotton and other natural fabrics, but also use other specialty and vintage fabrics.
