Plus Size Apparel and Unique Sewing Supplies

After about 50 years of sewing and 25 years working as a custom dressmaker, I have accumulated plenty of plus size apparel that I would like to share with other fashionable, plus size women. I have also collected all kinds of sewing supplies, tools, trims, and fabrics that I would like to ship to sewers who could use them.

As an author of two sewing books, Sewing for Plus Sizes and Sewing 911, my work reflects my expertise in plus size sewing, in fine sewing techniques, in my love for beautiful, mostly natural fiber fabrics, and in lively design.

I teach plus size sewing techniques on Craftsy in my on-line, interactive video class "Plus Size Pattern Fitting and Design." Here is a link for a discounted class:
