Sewing is fun and easy. Do you want to learn? Did you start a project and are having trouble finishing? Do you have an idea but don't know how to begin? I know I can help you and get you on your way to sewing fun.

I've got lots of experience and would love to help you get started sewing. I've made many Halloween costumes for children and grandchildren. I've made kitchen curtains and duvets. When my daughter was in high school, I made prom dresses. Just this summer, I've made maternity clothes for my daughter who's expecting grandchild number 5.

Whatever your age, you can learn to sew and have fun doing it. You can make things for your home or to wear. You can make gifts for your friends and family and save money, too. I sew all the time. It's something you can do in little time segments. You do your sewing when you have the time but first you have to learn the basics. That's what we'll do together. I'll be here to help and get you sewing.

Sewing

What kinds of things have I made? kitchen curtains for my daughter's house, special outfits for my granddaughter, Halloween costumes for my grandkids, simple slipcovers for deck furniture. I love to sew. Please look at some of the pictures on my profile to see a few of the things I've made.
I usually sew clothes from patterns but sometimes i get an idea for something that doesn't have a pattern and then I try to figure out how to make it.
