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.

Inspiration on my bedside table

Pin It!


I just received my (signed) copy of Seams to Me, the new sewing book from Anna Maria Horner.  The projects are adorable, and I think I may actually make a few!!  I’ll definitely make the two clothing items, and I’m going to try her appliqué dishtowels (I love dishtowels!)….I may even try to quilt something….though that may be pushing things a little far.

I do love the book.  I actually couldn’t sleep last night, just thinking about the gorgeous pictures inside, and honestly, with that stack of Garden Party next to my bed, I was itching to sew.  Too bad Ella wasn’t going to let me get out of bed to sneak away and work on any projects.

Maybe soon.  In the meantime, a girl can dream.
