About

I'm a stay-at-home-mom, living her dream of sewing for a living! I've got 2 teen boys, and a toddler daughter (whew!). I'm married to my best friend, Brian who is supporting (and fulfiilling) my dream. He encouraged me to exit the work force, so I could be at home with our daughter and supplement our income with my love of sewing. It's a big sacrifice for me to be home full time, but he wants me to do what I love. What a keeper!!

I was hooked and dreamt of someday sewing for a living. My first job was at a fabric store and I worked there for several years. Can you say, "Discount"? My mom said sewing was my 'gift' from God.

I was hooked and dreamt of someday sewing for a living. My first job was at a fabric store and I worked there for several years. Can you say, "Discount"? My mom said sewing was my 'gift' from God. I'm not trying to 'toot' my own horn, but it's definitely a talent and strong desire HE planted in me. I truly enjoy creating new & beautiful things, thanks to Him.

Currently, my sewing is focused on quilts; both for babies and grown ups! I always use quality fabrics & notions so my quilts are made to last! I'm definitely a 'modern' quilter. I find my inspiration in a beautiful fabric, a great color combination, or a random pattern I see.

My schedule doesn't allow for any custom work, at this time. My focus is to create exclusively from my current fabric supply, or 'stash'. This Mama is on a mission to support the family who's supporting HER:-) Thanks for visiting!
