Sharing my love of sewing

Continuing to Live in the Moment

Leave a comment

A cousin’s wedding (Hurricane Irene cancelled the original date). Thanksgiving at my nephew’s house. The death of a grand-niece. A new haircut. The death of a young cousin. A surprise birthday party for my husband. A new granddaughter. Visiting with my aunts and uncles. The death of my last great-uncle. High school and college graduations. Our annual backyard barbeque (during a power outage). A family tree quilt for the family reunion. A large family reunion (110 people) in South Carolina. My last child is now a college freshman. A surprise 30th birthday gathering for a niece. Plenty of family dinners. A lot of business traveling. A new client to design and sew for. Living in the moments.

When I have something to say, I say it. When I have nothing I want to say, I am silent. I haven’t had much I’ve wanted to say about sewing because sewing has been such a tiny part of my last year and a half. Rarely one of the moments in my current life. Now I have things I want to share. I have been inspired by a number of young women with an interest in sewing.

It’s nice to be back.

I started sewing when I was 11 years old, and had my own clients when I was 12. I graduated from the H.S. of Fashion Industries, majoring in fashion design. I expanded my technical background by attending evening classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology and working many years at a major pattern company. I have been creating custom wedding gowns and evening dresses for more years than I care to count. I LOVE WORKING WITH FABRICS. I love fine sewing techniques. I love creating beautiful dresses.
