What is your history with sewing?

Started when I was 6. Being sewing ever since. I am working professional in the field for 20 years, primarily costumes. I have a product line, have worked in over 50 shows and several films, including the national tour of wicked Iand have been an adjunct professor for costume design and construction. I sew daily.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have 6... My favorite is my 52 feather weight, even though she only straight stitches the stitches are the most beautiful I have seen.

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

Laugh and grab the seam ripper...

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

Wow, that's a tough one. Yes I can post pictures....

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

I am currently working on Halloween costumes. If I had more money, I would actually be making shoes.


I have been a professional designer and seamstress for the past 20 years. New to the Austin area and excited about meeting other folks who love to sew!
