ME, Barbara Edmondson - FROM STUDENT TO TEACHER: I've taught sewing for 5 years and my business did very well. I started creating simple patterns for first time sewers that are very easy to follow, mainly because I couldn't find any I was happy with to teach beginners from, and have seen that my students like my patterns. I take quite some time to write up a pattern & have my patterns proofread to help me edit before I offer them for sale. I hope you enjoy sewing from them as well as my students. Many pattern companies print lovely photos but their instructions are lacking detail. I want to make patterns that are easy for the those people (any age as long as they can read) first time who are new to sewing. Then of course they'd be super easy for people who already can sew. WHAT I LIKE TO DO: I love creating things. I like sewing, knitting, crocheting, and paper crafting. I also like photography. I live in Texas, out it the country in East Texas.
