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.

    ooooh…i’m so jealous. SF is one of my favorite cities. soooo much to see and do. there is a weird mall in Japantown that has a wonderful books store….tons of japanese craft books. if you need more info, i can try to dig up a receipt w/ a name and maybe a street address. C went positively insane with number of manga & anime books. J about fell over when he saw so many great origami books. we spent a very long time browsing in that store.

    We went to kinonuniya twice. In fact, we stayed at the hotel that is attached to the Japantown mall!

    Stitch Lounge was nice, but Ella didn’t let me leave her long enough to sew anything. I wish I could open a stitch lounge here!
