I began sewing many many years ago when I was seven years old. My mom gave me one of those cool old Singer sewing machines, one of the black ones with the gold scrollwork. But she thought I was too little to handle the electricity, so my dad attached a carpenters C-clamp to the wheel and my wonderful brother turned it when I wanted to sew. Of course that didn't last long and they gave in and let me have the foot pedal and I have been sewing ever since. I sewed and knitted and crocheted doll clothes, especially Barbie clothes. Then when I was 12 years old, I started selling custom made Barbie clothes to all the ladies in the neighborhood for their daughters.
Later in my 20's, as my sisters, (younger sisters I must add) started having kids, I made their children all sorts of things from Christening dresses right on up to their wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses…
