Northern Va

I started sewing when my neighbor taught me hand sewing when I was 7 yr old or so. I continued experimenting on my own with my mother's sewing machine. I perfer garment sewing. I'm what I call "fast and dirty". I prefer to get it done and wear it. I am working on slowing myself down and enjoy the journey. But I am not quite there yet.
