My mother-in-law gave me her mother's Pfaff sewing machine in 2009. The machine languished in a closet until I decided to leave my intense job to be a stay-at-home mom. I thought that sewing would satisfy my need for focus and accomplishment, so I took some lessons in the summer of 2010 and quickly fell in love!
My love of sewing stems, in part, from my love of beautiful fabric. Long before I began to sew (and, some might say, I even had a sense of style) I found myself drawn to good fabric - fabric that has movement and strength, quality fabric that has a sense of artistry in it's making. Now that I do sew, I love the hunt for beauty: the gem buried on the clearance table or abandoned in a thrift store, the new designer, the scraps from my projects and the things they can become.
My next venture is to design and sell custom-made skirts, dresses, and handbags…
