About

I have been sewing my own clothes for what seems like forever. Just for the fun of it I started making quilted handbags in 2001. I was amazed when someone asked me to make her a bag after she saw my 1st bag. From there I just kept going with the bags and eventually started selling my bags thru my website, www.arlenesbags.com.
I decided to open an etsy store to sell some of the prequilted fabric I have on hand because I thought others might find themselves in the same predicament I was in. Locally there are no longer any fabric stores left that sell much, if any, prequilted fabric.
In addition to sewing and tutoring at a local university, I spend a lot of time with my husband and our wonderful Basset Hound, Gracie. We spoil the living daylights out of her!
