The Mountains in Colorado

What got me into home sewing years ago was moving into my new home that had 10+ foot windows across the back of the house. After getting a quote to cover these windows I figured I could buy several machines and the fabric and still come out ahead - given I had the time to make them. Now I make my living doing custom patterns and tailoring to do a perfect fit for my clients. I love teaching techniques to my fellow sewers as well.
