Blaine, WA and Red Deer, Alta

I started sewing when I was around 7 or 8 making barbie clothes and I used to sew with my grandma, my first machine was beautiful Singer treadle machine. I took home ec sewing in high school when they offered great practical things like that; WOW, I've been sewing for 50+ years and now I've evolved to a fantabulous Viking Diamond and there's still so much to learn and do.
