Jackson, MI

I started making my clothes when I was 16. I learned sewing the hard way by teaching myself. When my children were young, I always made a handmade Christmas present for each. I now love mixed media, art quilts, making art dolls and anything with textiles. My 13 grandchildren keep me busy. I also sew for my dog Tobby.
