I sew for fun these days. After sewing for clients daily for many years I have started only doing things for my family. Now I will sew a few hours at a time on doll clothes for my granddaughter, making fleece pants for the grandsons and gifts.

I’ve been sewing since I was about 6 years and for many different reasons and love it. You name and I can create and sew it. Thank my grandmother for that as she taught me everything I know. I’ve sew children clothing, doll clothes, Barbie clothing (nightmare), Civil War Uniforms, fantasy animals in costumes, household items. And just recently decided to get back into sewing doll clothes to sell. I am also a fabric hoarder and not ashamed to say it, as is my daughter.

I love everything you do.i make a lot of outfits for family and friends and for fund raisers. I use old skirts and tops from schools that have uniforms. I make headbands and backpacks that I embroider initials or school name. As my granddaughters get older and not interested in their dolls,( older girls are 13 ). I will be sad. I also do a lot of Barbie clothes. I usually shop joanns or Hobby Lobby and a few quiilt shops.But my favorite is to visit Holmes county in Ohio. This is Amish country and have several outlet fabric stores. I can stay all day. LAst year I Was able to purchase four and five inch zippers for one dollar. I shopped til I dropped. SEwing is my sanity.
