Sewing and quilting quickly became a passion of mine about 15 years ago when my aunt, Dee, encouraged me to take a beginning sewing class. In this class I learned the basics of using a sewing machine and constructed a simple tote bag out of upholstery remnants. I was so excited to learn all about the things I could make with my new sewing machine that I began to go to the fabric store and purchase more and more fabric! Soon I was making clothes for my 3 daughters, tote bags, pillows, and quilts for my family. It wasn't long before I began to sew wallets, purses, and other handmade items to sell at local craft shows. I learned most of my skills from watching numerous YouTube videos and practicing techniques until I had them mastered. I have worked in local quilt shops over the years and have taught many classes from quilting, wallets, stuffed animal construction, as well as basic sewing skills. I look forward to helping you learn a new skill and share my passion of sewing and creating with fabric.
