My mother, Molly, taught me sewing basics when I was in grade school. I sewed my school garments and my wardrobe items on and off for many years. Started home decor sewing in 1989 and turned that experience into a slipcover business. I retired this year and am sewing fewer slipcovers, so I am sewing garments again (along with my adult daughter and 10 year old granddaughter). My first class is Couture Sewing.
