i am a two time cancer survivor, with 4 children, 4 sons and daughters in law, 4 grandchildren, one wonderful husband, and one very devoted dog. I have sewn since 9 years old, as my mother told me if i didn't learn how to make my own clothes, nothing would ever fit my body. Years of sewing all my kids clothes, all mine, sewing bridal ensembles for years, and many many crafts. I am ready to retire, now, and do for me.
