What is your history with sewing?

I started sewing a few years ago, and I fell in love with it. I have taken a beginner class and a few online classes. I typically use tutorials and sew items for family members. My experience includes baby bibs, swaddle blankets, toys, reusable paper towels, bags, etc.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have a Janome.

When you make a mistake while sewing, what do you do?

It depends on the project and what stage I'm at with it. Sometimes I keep truckin' and other times I take a break before continuing.

What's your favorite thing you've ever sewn? Can we see a picture?

Hmm, I suppose my favorite things are the reusable Santa sacks I sewed for my family this past Christmas. The fabric matches each individual's style, and I'm so excited to use them again and again.

If skill, time, and resources were no issue, what would you sew right now?

My wedding dress, the bridesmaid dresses, bowties for the boys and robes to wear while we all get ready!


I'm a lover of family, friends, crafts, food, learning and nature!
