Jaime Johnson's Profile

About

I have been interested in crafting since I was a little girl thumbing through a 1970's craft book my aunt gave me. In high school I started sewing and made my Junior Homecoming dress, several ill-fitting cotton shift dresses (hey - fitting skills came later!) a quilt for my mom and many other things. I was hooked! I studied Home Economics in college and earned a Bachelor of Science with an emphasis in Clothing Construction. I have worked for Viking and Pfaff sewing machines, as an Alterations Manager for David's Bridal, and currently sew from my home. Before we had kids, I enjoyed making Star Wars costumes for Halloween for my husband and I. These days, my son is my BEST customer and I've enjoyed making him costumes and, most recently, shorts, as he cheers me on. I also have a little girl who enjoys blankets. I can't wait to see what she adds to my sewing list when she's old enough to express her desires. Thanks for visiting my shop…
