About

I have been sewing since around the age of ten when my Mom enrolled me in sewing lessons. When my first son was born I worked at a sewing shop in Saratoga making custom drapes, toys, and clothing. I then began a long-time career as a professional fundraiser. Several years ago I stopped working outside the home and was able to finally have the time to sew again!

Growing up the second of ten children I was always taking care of babies. My siblings and I gave my parents 25 Grandchildren. Lots of babies! And I am a very proud Mom of two incredible sons. And 4 years ago I became a Grandmother to a precious Grandson, and now have an 18 month Granddaughter!

My family was divided into the "Big Kids" & "The Littles". The third youngest "Little" was so attached to her purple security blanket we named it "Goya" for the noise she made…

My family was divided into the "Big Kids" & "The Littles". The third youngest "Little" was so attached to her purple security blanket we named it "Goya" for the noise she made while sucking her thumb while holding it, and was distraught each time my parents tried to break her of her "Linus" habit. Security blankets are such a big part of many children's lives that some even sneak them off to college (not mentioning a certain beloved nephew of mine here!)

Explanation of shop's name:
My maternal Grandmother was nicknamed "Giggle" by my eldest cousin when she couldn't pronounce the word Grandma. When my oldest son, who is the oldest of the 25 Grandkids began talking he called my Mom "Giggle" too. With these two remarkable women in our lives what else could I have called my shop but "Baby Giggles"?
