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.

She clapped along for a couple claps, then went to her book stack, throwing off the smaller books as if looking for something. She was searching for her nursery rhymes book! She turned to the pat-a-cake page and pointed to the cake!!

Then, saying goodnight to everything outside, (trees, stars, etc.) we went”
