My name is Ginger, and I began sketching and designing fashion styles when I was 5 years old, just like my mother and grandmother. Stick pins and lovely tan tissue paper were my favorite play items as a little brown haired girl, and still are today! Some ladies dream of Prince Charming, but I dream of a dressmaker form on a stand. From haute couture to pattern design, I truly love dressmaking and bearmaking. Hugs, Ginger Stockwell
