About


I first started sewing when I was seven years old with my very own child-sized Singer sewing machine. Sewing doll clothes for my sisters' and my dolls was a great start, then in high school Home Ec (remember Home Ec?!) I made a dress. It was the only one in the class that didn't fall apart. I made my own clothes in college and for many years after.

I am still quite inspired by pretty dresses: you can see that influence in my sassy aprons. I pay close attention to design detail, color combinations and special touches to make my aprons unique. My aprons are designed to be worn whether for special occasions or to make everyday special. They are known for not only their high quality construction but for beautiful fabric combinations and the extra special touches that make them stand out. I also prevail upon my daughters, my husband and even my neighbors to try on aprons…

My aprons are designed to be worn whether for special occasions or to make everyday special. They are known for not only their high quality construction but for beautiful fabric combinations and the extra special touches that make them stand out. I also prevail upon my daughters, my husband and even my neighbors to try on aprons so I am certain that I have a good fit for a variety of sized folks - even little ones. My Romance/Cocktail aprons are sexy and classy and are designed so women of nearly every size will feel oh so feminine. If you love Mommy and Me (or Me and Mommy) outfits, you must check out my Matching Mother Daughter Apron sets:

I am honored to be a part of this Etsy world of artisans, crafters, and creators. My goal is to keep designing and creating functional, pretty, fun and high quality aprons - made in America. Providing the discriminating buyer with a high quality, made in America product is very important to me. I support American Vendors both in my business and personally.

I love to cook, play Settlers of Catan, shop, work in my gardens, and am into mystery, cooking, and historical books I am hoping to teach myself to quilt in the next couple of years. Learning, creating, sewing makes life beautiful!
