For me, sewing was instinctive. My mom loves to sew and both of my grandmothers were extremely talented with all types of sewing. When I was very young, I naturally headed to my mom?s sewing scraps and started making doll clothes. At age 12, I received an inexpensive Singer sewing machine for Christmas. After that, I was making almost all of my clothes. As they say, "The rest was history."
