Seattle, WA USA

I am a returning sewer. I initially learned under the tutelage of my Godmother; who still lives only 5 to 10 minutes away. It's been quite sometime since I did my last project (a decade or two), and I feel like I am learning to sew all over again. Hopefully, I will have mastered the patience to do, and enjoy, the prep work prior to revving up my sewing machine.
