I've always loved color, texture and pattern since I was very young. I learned to sew about eleventy years ago. My first sewing project was a yellow cotton print skirt with an elasticized waist and a matching belt with a silver filigree buckle...I earned my sewing badge in Girl Scouts despite my tastes in accessories. Thank you Mrs. Schilling wherever you are!

I love to repurpose things...Once upon a time, I cannibalized a down comforter to make double pairs of chair cushions...I apparently offered up my vacuum cleaner as a sacrifice as well (do not try this at home).

I credit my older sister who, on a rare afternoon, made me take apart my Home Ec sewing project and do it over properly. I'm quite positive I hated her at the time....and there were tears, mine and not hers...but I came away with the valuable lesson that anything worth doing…

I'm quite positive I hated her at the time....and there were tears, mine and not hers...but I came away with the valuable lesson that anything worth doing is worth doing right and no half measures. This approach has served me well over the years.

However, now I can confess in this safe Etsy forum that I am a serial fabric toucher...I can't pass a fabric store by and I have to pet the fabrics. Some people have cute little dogs, I have Italian woolens. I also suffer from OFD, Obsessive Fabric Disorder which is an addiction to fabric though not officially recognized by any medical body...You or someone close to you may have this, too but it's a very groovy thing. Cheers!
