Barb's Profile

About

Hi, my name is Barbara. I love to sew. I have been sewing garments, baby things, home decor, and craft items for family, friends and myself since 1969. I always made my children's costumes for Halloween, etc., gifts for teachers and friends. My kids were always finding things for me to make at the last minute! I was a stay-at-home mom for 26 years. Then took a part-time job to help make ends meet.

My husband and I have been married since July of 1973 and have 5 children, 5 grandchildren.

I LOVE fabric. I can go into a fabric store and spend hours just looking at and touching the fabric, daydreaming about what I might do with certain pieces.

I am self-taught at quilting, cake decorating and machine embroidery designing, among other things. I digitize my own embroidery designs…

While I have been known to make a traditional quilt or two, I'd rather make smaller items like tea cozies and fabric postcards among other things. See my sold items and my feedback for ideas. See my Facebook album "Mini Quilts" for a pic of the Piano and Cello mini quilts.

NOTE: Currently my shop is empty as I am involved in other ventures. I hope to have my shop open again at some point in the future.
