Scottsdale, AZ

My grandmothers had terrific sewing, knitting, crochet and needlework talent along with an abundance of loving patience to teach me these skills. My mother had an Elna sewing machine that I learned to sew on that challenged me on every project and taught me patience with machine repair!
