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.

It took almost a week and a half, but this jacket is finished. A bit too big for Ella, but with a temporary tuck at the back neckline, it will work until it’s needed again this fall. I’m so pleased that the effort yielded such a lovely finished product. I took the “slow sewing” article in Threads to heart and focused on the process.
