About

I love to sew & I adore Pincushions :) ....Oodles of Pincushions !

I fell in love with creating things as a child. Watching my Grandmother sew on her (converted) treadle Singer sewing machine, I begged her to let me try. When I was 10 years old, I took a sewing class at the YWCA making a flowered jumper (almost) all by myself :) By Jr. High I was sewing pants, prom dresses, shirts, and shorts to wear. then for fun; pillows, stuffed animals, dolls and purses.
~Grew up, got married and sewed for my family. For a while I sewed for interior decorators making pillows, curtains, placemats, basket liners and anything else their customers wanted. I worked with a dry cleaner doing custom sewing, mending, bridal fittings and general tailoring. I worked at a wonderful quilt shop, added quilting to my list of fun. I also worked at a store sewing Amish mens pants and shirts. I took crafts to church bazaars and seasonal school events. A local quilt shop manager saw the Finger Pincushions I was selling at a craft fair and ordered a bunch. I contacted other quilt shops and sent samples which got me more orders... I enjoy making and collecting Pincushions of any kind. I think it's fun to create and sew a new batch ! I have met so many nice people through my sewing. It's been a great journey.
Today, my husband and I create oodles of pincushions, selling to shops across the United States. We are a great team and enjoy our time together. Sometimes we have an order for 600 Finger Pincushions at a time and it gets a little crazy around here ! ~not to mention the sore fingers..
We have a website (www.OodlesofPincushions.com) for bulk orders and our Etsy shop (OodlesOfWhimsy.etsy.com) for smaller orders. I published a book, "The ABCs of Sewing"; one of our sons (a computer whiz) helped me with graphics and computer formatting and my hubby helped proofread so it really was a group effort !
If you ever need a gift for a quilter, a new pincushion for yourself (or oodles of them), I hope you'll visit Oodles Of Whimsy and check out our variety of items.
It was 'sew' nice of you to stop by and read my story !
~We have a second Etsy shop, OodlesOfVintage.etsy.com where we sell Vintage and Antique goodies.
~I'd be honored to have you visit my blog (http://www.blog.oodlesofpincushions.com/)
There's info there about selling your crafts, interviews with folks who work from home, sewing references and more.
~I gladly take CUSTOM ORDERS for the colors or themes you want and offer BULK RATES :) Let me know how I can accommodate you~
