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.

back and buried, but happy!

Pin It!

    LOL it involved about 15 minutes (because Ella was “helping” by putting screws in every hole…) and I think I got everything for under $100. We sold the other table, so even with spending this, we made a profit :) So really, it was free! I’ll take pictures as soon as I have my things back in the room (Friday?) because it’s not fair to post pictures with only half the stuff in and appear more organized than I am!!
