Ever since I was a little girl, my passion has been sewing. I love to work with fabric and enjoy quilting, embroidery, as well as garment sewing. My goal is to provide easy-to-follow patterns that are fun to make, informative, and "simply sewn". I like to share ideas and projects on my blog at rickrackandpolkadots.com as well as through my patterns and the classes I teach. Thank you for your interest.
