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.

Overfilled Sink

We had our bath in the kitchen today. I cannot believe how big she is! I know, I know very soon this will seem “small” and she won’t be fascinated by bumblebees, and saying “dropped it” or “reach it” won’t be such a big deal anymore….someday she’ll be leaving elementary school like Peter will tomorrow. But for now, she looks big to me. Barely fits in the sink…

    It’s heartbreaking how fast kids grow! Just tonight I was looking at my youngest (he’ll be 4 in two weeks) and I can’t believe how big he is. Even tho he’s still my “baby”, he’s far from a baby. He wants to be big like his brothers so bad he can hardly stand it. I HATE it and didn’t sign up for this type of heartbreak, or did I???? :-( She’s a doll, enjoy the special moments!
