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.

My Kindergartener’s Hummingbird Museum Exhibit

Pin It!

So, since the beginning of January, Ella has been working on an exhibit, complete with surveys, research questions, diarama, collages, papier mache, etc. to participate in Museum Day at her school. She chose to learn about hummingbirds and it was so thrilling to hear her speak about her exhibit.

When we came home from Museum Day, she re-created the display in our main living area, and has shown everyone who has visited what she learned.



I’m so proud of her, but more importantly, she’s proud of herself and the work she put into the exhibit.

We plan to do another this summer. She’s thinking about the topic she’d like to study now.

Do your kids do in-depth studies at school (or at home?) I was so surprised at her blissful enthusiasm.

p.s. that Dress is made with the Made by Rae pattern “Pierrot” available here.
