1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am a mom of 4 and self taught sewer. I did lots of different crafts before I tried sewing but this is the one that I will stay loyal to for life! I live near Pittsburgh PA but I am from Atlanta GA.

2. What are your favorite projects to design?

I love to design useful and fun things for kids and Moms. I love fun pillows and pretty things. I design what I would want to sew for myself and my friends and family.

3. What is your favorite thing you have made for yourself? For someone else?

I almost always love the bags I make for myself. I try to make a new one each season to get me in the mood! My clothes may be on the tame side but my bag can really be bright and fun! My favorite thing I have made for another person is my Annie Penguin Pillow for my daughter Anne. She sleeps with it every night and I love seeing her arrange it just right when she makes her bed.

4. What is your favorite season/holiday to decorate for?

Christmas for sure!! I barely do any decorating for other holidays but I go all out at Christmas!

5. What DIY tips or tricks would you like to share with customers?

Measure 3 times and cut once! In sewing, it’s all about good cutting and paying attention to the uniformity of your seams. Oh, and, clip your threads as you sew! Everything is so much neater this way…

6. Other interests or hobbies?

I love taking walks with my kids, vegetable gardening and watching movies with my handsome husband!


7. Favorite Quote:

“This, too, shall pass.” That has gotten me through a lot crying babies in the night and through many home improvement projects. I like to go with the flow and know that life has mostly ups and a few downs.
