About

While some people consider sewing to be heading toward becoming "a lost art," I know it's alive and well. I've been selling patterns online for almost 15 years, and I never get tired of them! The fashion is amazing, and the illustrations are fascinating to me. I have a collection of hundreds of original and repro sewing patterns, catalogs, and books that I love to look through. So call me obsessed with sewing patterns, and I'd be ok with that.
I sell sewing patterns purely for the love of them.

My grandmother worked as an editor for Pictorial Review in the early 20s, so I'm pretty sure I come by my love of fashion genetically. In my dream world, I would go back to school and get a master's degree in fashion history.

Stuff I love: reading -- I read anything, but especially vintage fashion history…

Stuff I love: reading -- I read anything, but especially vintage fashion history books. I am teaching myself to draw, and am fascinated with portraits. I paint for fun and relaxation. I also love our three Cavachons, a good glass of wine, the beach, and one certain very special US Marine. The rest of my life finds me mom to three, boo to one, and nurse to many.
