My mom taught me how to sew and do simple crafts when I was very young. I made my own clothes until I got into high school. I gave up sewing until I became disabled with Fibromyalgia 20 some years ago. Now, it's all I really want to do. It really relaxes me and I love creating. I'm not able to sew enough to make a living, but I have a lot of nieces who keep me busy making wedding dresses, flower girl dresses and costumes.
