What is your history with sewing?

It's in the blood...had my own sewing machine since 8..... I toured a jean factory as a child.... mom/grandmother were contract stitchers...won several awards for my sewing....and planning to start my own line with Spring 2011

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have 3 home 1 industrial and 2 sergers

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

put it down and go to bed....mistakes mean I'm to tired to sew any more

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

Would have to be my Karl Largerfeld Red Wool Creep jacket I made in men's tailoring class in college. The fabric cost 20 a yard, it had 7 bound button holes, a narrow shawl collar, and welt pockets. I wish I had pictures because I lost it.

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

Patterning and making my clothing collection


I love sewing, creating fashion, sharing that passion with other and seeing where their creativity takes them.
