Will I really be doing this, I think so. I will be bringing my enormous fabric stash to the table. When I first started selling handmade it was quilted table linens, and I am longing to give that a try here on etsy. I hope to be stocked mid summer with quilted table runners, placemats and coasters, and complimentary items like napkins and napkin holders.

For now you can find me here:

Hello, my name is Sandy and I sew, LOTS. I enjoy making things that are utilitarian, to be used and enjoyed. Mainly I sew; bags, quilts, table linens, crafting projects and once in awhile garments or anything else that catches my attention for more then a minute…

Hello, my name is Sandy and I sew, LOTS. I enjoy making things that are utilitarian, to be used and enjoyed. Mainly I sew; bags, quilts, table linens, crafting projects and once in awhile garments or anything else that catches my attention for more then a minute.

I have been an avid sewer for about 15 years, first self teaching, then onto classes. I lucked into some wonderful classes where I was able to sew anything I wanted and learned from my own projects as well as the others in the class. I never really had an interest in anything other then garments and I made lots of clothes for myself from pajamas to gowns.

I had never even considered quilting or any other sewing then garments as I really did enjoy making my own clothes, until I attended a quilt show. I was blown away by the detail, amount of fabrics used and the flexibility that quilting offered. I had always imagined quilting as country and honestly boring, glad I was shown otherwise. I began taking quilting classes and now rarely ever make garments. One great thing about quilts is they always fit - not so with clothing. Quilting has so many possibilities that branching into other sewing from this was a natural progression. I look at all projects as quilts, with body, borders, piecing and quilting elements combining into the items I offer here. I use modern quilting tools and techniques to design and construct my items.

I used to daydream in my cubicle of days filled with sewing and fabric, and would take vacation days just to go home and sew for hours and hours. My apartment at the time was my sewing room (the joy of living alone) and had always wondered if sewing full time would ever be feasible. Now thanks to etsy and days filled with sewing and fabric it almost is my reality. I am thankful and lucky to have a husband who is supportive and encouraging to make this obsessive hobby a full time, and sometimes more then full time way of life. I can still spend hours and hours at the machine.

I was lucky enough to be featured in the Storque in January 2009 in the "Quit Your Day Job" series focusing on my other handmade shop. You can see and learn a little more here.
