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.

    yep….it is simply some toddlers do. for some, it happens only once or twice. for others, it is a “phase.” you did the right thing by not letting her continue to hurt you. letting her see you cry, can teach her that what she did hurts.
