About Jeanne

I have enjoyed sewing since I first learned in 8th grade. (That was in 1968). In my youth, I made clothes for myself. As my family grew, I made clothes for my daughter and costumes for all three of my children, as well as costumes for their lower school musical productions. I also made many of the curtains and drapes for my house.

I am 66, a guy who never sewed in his life. Wait, I think I made a puppet in 3rd grade. But nothing since. I bought a sail-maker's sewing machine. I have a dodger on my sailboat that needs to be replaced. The winter cover is in taters. My motorcycle cover is sadly lacking. I want a cover for my rowboat, surf ski, and sailboat dingy. I am hoping to make a canvas top for my 1950 Jeep that is g
