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.


Pin It!

I made this so long ago….and we haven’t seen each other so I could gift it….but today she’s coming, and I need to photograph before it’s gone. I hope she likes it.

I love my friend, Jen.  She is a poet and writer of lists. 

We used to spend hours on the phone on Saturdays, writing lists on legal pads to sort out our childhood, preteen, teen, and later, adult issues.  Even now, when I think about solving anything I think, "Wait, let me get the legal pad."
