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.

Promise of Warmth to Come

Pin It!

…or at least longer days.  The gold wool reminded me of Winter Solstice…and the promise of brighter days.  Ella loves her buttery wool sweater…in fact, it’s so soft that she’s wearing it on it’s own without a t-shirt underneath.

I took inspiration from a brown sweater we bought in Copenhagen a couple years ago…now that she’s finally growing out of it, it was time to find a replacement.  I’ll also be offering this one in my shop in natural felted wool and a lovely dark warm brown felted wool, all with those adorable wooden buttons!

I’m really excited about this design, because I’ve been dreaming it and testing it for what seems like forever!
