Melissa Q's Profile

About

a happy stitch is the shop of Melissa Q:, a Minnesota girl transplanted to the Jersey suburbs. I am a self-taught sewer, pattern designer, and sewing teacher with a general curiosity about how things are made. this can mean I spend days attempting to make things that I end up swearing at (such as beet juice lip gloss...darn you!). It also means I stare at strangers for uncomfortably long periods of time studying their clothes. I try to pass on these odd habits as much as possible through my sewing courses taught in Central New Jersey. So far, it seems to be working. Follow my adventures on my blog at ahappystitch.com

The items in my shop are my patterns, sewn goods, and items I've found to beautify and embellish the projects of others. Handmade is a move beyond the ordinary and the same-same and closer to the heart...support the revolution!
