Barbara Combs' Profile

About

I have had my own crafting business for many years. We go by the name of 'Combs Creations'. It has just been a hobby, making things for gifts and now and again setting up a table at craft fairs. When my children were young, I made most of their clothes.
I started sewing when I was 11 years old on my grandmother's treddle machine. She also taught me how to crochet and embroider. My mother was a wonderful seamstress. I remember many stitches she made me take out because they weren't straight enough!

I am a retired legal assistant and spent several years in retail fabric/craft sales. I owned my own fabric store for several years. I have been quilting for many years. I have mainly given them as gifts. Now it is time to make a full-time business of the things I love to do. I have doll clothes, vests and clothing items that will be of interest…

I like to crochet/knit and make jewelry. So, on any given day you may be surprised what you will find from me.

For more of a personal background, I have a Bachelor's degree in legal assistant/secretarial work, a tailoring certificate and have won many, many ribbons at the Iowa State Fair for my sewing, etc. I have two grown sons - that can also sew and cook!

I have two dogs, a toy poodle and a maltese. They are terribly spoiled. I am a writer, writing poetry and short stories and have been editor for several newsletters. I recently wrote a romance novel and of course, I would like to sell you a copy - just ask.

I hope you enjoy the items in my shop and tell your friends. I am certainly enjoying seeing many of your shops. I owned my own fabric store for a few years and did lots of custom sewing. I also worked as a supervisor in a chain fabric store for several years. Love it.

I have a granddaughter that got an American Girl doll for Christmas and she wanted clothes for it. After making them I had so much fun that I am adding that line to my site. If you have grandchildren or little ones who needs something for their doll, please be sure to watch my site. Something new all the time.
