About

I have been sewing & creating for close to 30 years. I have done everything from sewing children's and adult's clothing, designing costumes for the costume rental business I had for 10 years,and then I fell in love with computerized machine embroidery which I still dabble in depending upon the project I am working on. Sewing bags, totes, purses, you name it, is something I have done all along and seem to enjoy the most.

My inspiration comes from fabric - new or anything that can be upcycled! Finding my materials in thrift shops is like a treasure hunt! An article of clothing that was all the rage in years gone by is now going to have a new life as a bag created by me! I also love searching online for the perfect piece of fabric that is exactly right for one of my projects.

I am limited only by my imagination!…
