I started sewing as a very young child and absolutely fell in love with the craft. As a young mother I made all of my own clothes as well as those for my four children. While my children were in school, I also went to school and became a Licensed Professional Counselor. Later, in life I changed careers and became a computer programmer and then a webmaster. It seems like sewing has been the great passion and comforter during my whole life. It has always been fun to learn or create something new. And it has carried me through the difficult times in my life.
