In addition to sewing I'm also an Ambassador for the Red River Valley chapter of Ainsley's Angels in Minnesota (www.facebook.com/AAinMinnesota). The mission of Ainsley's Angels of America (www.ainsleysangels.org) is to ensure that everyone can experience endurance events, as well as to build awareness about America's special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life, by promoting awareness, providing education, and participating as active members in our local communities.

When I'm not sewing or running I enjoy coffee and pinterest. :)
