Married, mom of two wonderful kids. I love the great outdoors, animals, dancing, making things, and teaching. I have been sewing since 1973 and teaching creative endeavors since 1994. I love inspiring others! This lead me to create pdf sewing patterns and instruction booklets that allow me to share and teach even outside the classroom. I have sewn for dance troops, retail stores, a museum, and lots of individuals. I have made everything from swimsuits to wedding gowns and I love making my own jeans! I teach sewing, quilting, and other creative projects to adults and children. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my students' eyes light up as they discover the joy of making and realise they can do it too!
