Wouldn't Minnie Mae be surprised....

I grew up with the knowledge that my grandmother ran a small, local store in our community in the early 1900's. She sold food, supplies, and odds and ends. Her store was long gone by the time I came along but I always thought it was really special that she provided a service to the community like she did. My grandmother was an inspiration to me because of her kindness, dedication, and most importantly, her love to her family. Her name was Minnie Mae. She didn't like "Minnie" and went by "Mae".... We called her, "Nanny". I've never forgotten my "Nanny" and I'm proud of the legacy she left behind.

Throughout the years, I fooled with sewing off and on, never really "going" anywhere with it. You know, I did the occasional hemming of pants, sewing on buttons, making Barbie doll clothes, or even just patching a ripped blanket. It wasn't until I had a child of my own to make something special for, did I start searching out patterns at the store. The rest was history. Overtime, I started making some of my own patterns. People started noticing the gifts that I gave to others that were homemade and began asking if I could make "this or that" for them.

Eventually, I thought that maybe I could open up a shop and sell fabric grocery bags and baby blankets. I did and people started requesting other types of items so I branched out and started sewing all sorts of things. Sewing and selling just one or two types of items was boring to me so I tried new things all of the time.....and here I am, running Minnie Maes and it's menagerie of sewn items, from critters to bags...

    I learned to sew in a 6th grade Home Economics class. There was something special about holding that bright orange, stuffed skateboard in my hands when the process was over. That was the beginning of it all.
