My name is Liz Schaffner. I am a Canadian living in Germany. I have been sewing longer then I can remember. Everything from curtains, clothes, teddybears, quilts & now bags. Guess you would say I am a "over 40 yrs of sewing experience beginner" ! I have always sewed! I can’t remember a time without a needle & thread. I always believed it is my mission to motivate others to sew and to create!! When I discovered faux leather I went bag crazy! It did not surprise my family when I started designing my own patterns, to motive others to try sewing with faux leather. My mission is to design patterns that are different, inspiring and fun to sew and filled with lots of pictures. If you would like to try something different, try one of my patterns maybe you’ll develop a love for faux leather too? Have no fear all my patterns are “ cotton” friendly also !! Happy Sewing !! Liz
