We are all connected by something

Since 2012, I have been actively helping PDF designers, whether it was admining a Facebook group, running sew-a-longs, testing new patterns, or helping with social media. After realizing I have a desire to not only help other designers but to also create patterns of my own, I landed here.
I started sewing at a young age, just making it up as I went. then in 2011, I decided I needed to learn how to read a pattern. Since then, I have been sewing almost daily! I hope you find something you like here, whether it is help for your business/page, a pattern you love, or an item I created for you!

Happy creating!
