Vilia Buckingham's Profile
Hi, my name is Vilia Buckingham, and I am a grandmother to nine wonderful grandchildren.
I learned to crochet and sew many years ago while in high school, and out of necessity used most of my sewing skills for my family. Many of my family members and friends are owners of my crochet and sewing efforts, not to mention the numerous co-workers of my family that have commissioned my handicrafts.
Crocheting and knitting gives me the great pleasure of turning a ball of string or a skein of yarn into a piece of fabric. I love the fact that sewing allows me to own a garment that is tailored to my wishes; you know, longer hem lengths for my skirts and dresses, my favorite type of waistband, the desired length of my jackets and blouses, and I can have pockets in all my pants. Sewing lends me the art of designing my own clothes…
