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.

Teaching again!

Pin It!

Oh how glad I am to be back to teaching again. I’ve been filming some video classes (more on that, later) but I’m really looking forward to co-creating with real live students. Tomorrow’s class if FREE, too!

I’ll be teaching at the Okemos branch of the Capital Area District Library.  We’ll put together kid-sized t-shirts (12 mos-6/7) from parent-sized t-shirts.

There will be supplies available, including some thrifted shirts in case you want to practice on one that isn’t your favorite 80’s Metallica concert tee.  Just bring a sewing machine and your usual sewing supplies. (A ballpoint needle would help!)

If you want a copy of Sewing for Boys, I’ll have copies available for you to purchase.
