When I was a young child my mother placed a needle and thread in my hand. I was embroidering by the age of 9. From that point on I knew what I loved to do, and I have been sewing ever since. Almost 70 years later, sewing is still my passion.

I have constructed the princess costumes for a Party Planner, and the princesses often are complimented on their dresses.

I have made, embellished, and altered many wedding dresses and ensembles.

I also enjoy creating baby quilts and bibs, hand puppets, and stuffed animals.

During the holiday seasons I create small felt ornaments. I have over 25 different designs many of which have been my own.

I pride myself on my creations and quality is very important to me.

I am now also managing my Aunt's shop here on Etsy, she just recently passed away at almost 101, she was still doing amazing work at over 100. Check it out -- Gr8Gr8Auntie
