Mary Opdahl's Profile
Ever since I was a small kid, even as early as six years old I have been sewing, crocheting or creating in some way. It was my bonding time with my mom. We went to quilt shows, I learned how to hand piece Barbie quilts and make them outfits. We would visit antique stores and craft shows and try to figure out how to make what the stores and vendors were selling.
I have been selling bags, aprons and things for years to friends and family. Everyone I love has some handmade item from me in their home. Many have lots of things. Over the past couple of years I have learned to use my sewing/creating time as a time with God. I pray for the those who are touched by my products and let God speak to me while I work. It has become such a peaceful inspiring time for me while my art "becomes".
I love working with quality fabrics. To me, collecting fabric is like having that really big box of crayons we all…
