I run, I craft, I write, and I make your favorite clothes.

I have written books about sewing for children and adults and I'm the indie designer’s patternmaking secret weapon. I've taught video and in-person classes to anyone who would listen since 2008. I believe that sewing clothes is a radical act of self-love that increases your sense of self-worth. I'm basically your sewing fairy godmother.

Atlanta, here we come!

Pin It!

This Friday, Rae and I will fly down to Atlanta to play and craft and teach at Whipstitch Fabrics, owned by the talented and formidable fabric collector, Deborah. We have a really fun weekend planned, starting with a crafty meetup on Friday Night

complete with snacks (many thanks in advance to the Atlanta Modern Sewing Guild for sponsoring treats!) and sewing.

On Saturday, Rae and I will have a little chat on Successful Handmade Garment Sewing from 10:30-noon with some garment samples, techniques, and (hopefully!)helpful handouts.

It wouldn’t been a weekend with us if there weren’t also actual sewing involved, so after lunch on Saturday we’ll get right into sewing up some Treasure Pocket Pants from the Book.

As far as I know, there are still a couple of spots left for the afternoon workshop.  You can sign up here, if you’ll be in the area and want to make some Treasure Pockets with us. Deborah has some fabulous fabric available for purchase, just in case you cannot bear to part with your stash, OR (more likely) if you want to add to it!

You don’t have to be local to Atlanta, GA to get in on the Whipstitch goodness; Deborah offers wildly popular e-classes right here on the internet.

I hope we’ll see you soon.  Cross your fingers there’s not a tornado at this meetup!
