About

Am a retired senior citizen who loves to sew and loves to make quality items at affordable prices for others.

Been using a sewing machine for well over 50 years. Learned on my mothers all-black 1940's straight stitch Singer. Took several sewing courses back in the 50's when in high school and have pretty much been sewing along ever since.

They do the wine tasting thing and had seen the ones made of metal and the like, and, thought that maybe we could make them up out of fabric. Tried several different ways until I came up with the present way of making them up.

I even won a National Sewing contest with the WGHNs back in 2010. You can see more info on same and more photos from the past of the WGHNs at http:/wghn.blogspot.com.

My Wine Glass Holder Necklaces are the original Bikini Style WGHNs by Oceanpeg that have been sold to both vendors and individual people at these low vendor prices, for themselves, and for re-sales at wine festivals and the like, that have been marked up to around $5 each for same.

My DIL did so well with selling them at wine festivals, I decided to give them a try on the internet.
