About

I’ve been crafting and DIYing since I could hold a lump of Play-doh. But I didn’t own a sewing machine until a week after I enrolled for my A.A. degree in fashion. I still use that sewing machine, it’s a Brother XR-34. A total work horse, it hasn’t let me down yet! (update – I did break down and get a sewing machine with lots of bells, buttons and stitches but I still have love for my ole sturdy machine and its still used on the regular) 🙂

I earned a B.S. degree in fashion design and gained experience as a designer and pattern maker working in the fashion industry prior to striking out on my own in 2003.

I like to dabble in all craft mediums but my heart remains in textiles. The sewing magic happens in a snazzy little spare bedroom in Richmond, VA with my faithful snoring fido at my feet.
