Valerie's Profile

About

I have been sewing & creating for over 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.

Fabric inspires me, and I usually have a vision immediately as to what I want to create with a piece of fabric - whether the fabric be new or something to be recycled. Finding my materials in thrift shops is like a treasure hunt - an article of clothing that was fashionable years ago will receive a new life as an entirely different creation! 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!
