Sewing since the age of 14 (Middle School), my aunt had taught me all the basics before then. So while everyone in class was making pillows, I made a skirt (my first project). I had stopped sewing for a very long while; kids, family, working and obtaining my Masters and Doctorate degrees in Education.
I finally decided to pull out the ‘ol machines this past Christmas 2013 and fire them up again, It’s so like riding a bike…..I love clothes and fashion and believe that clothes are a work of art and the body is the canvas. I am also the owner of Simply Elegant Boutique in Tacoma, WA. I sell vintage, retro, designer and modern clothing and accessories for women.
My Favorite Textiles/Fabrics:
