Threads and Things
When I was seven years old I received a child's Singer sewing machine. I designed and sewed my doll's dresses. (Basically they were cloth tubes cinched at the waist with a piece of ribbon). But I was hooked on sewing!
By the time I was sixteen I was making my own clothes. People began hiring me to sew for their families.
After I married, I sewed most of my family's clothes to help save money. I wish my machine had an odometer on it to record how many miles of cloth has been fed through it.
Now that I'm an "empty nester", I'm turning my attention to selling hand crafted items on I specialize in quality sewn items from wearables to home decor.
Also I've just started making jewelry and, with the help of my two daughters, we've made quite a few items to sell.
I love to use the latest patterns, fabrics, and ideas, so check back often to see what's new.
Everything is made in a smoke-free and pet-free environment.

I am married to my best friend for 29 years. I have two beautiful grown daughters and 2 grandsons with another one on the way. How truly blessed I am. My husband and I love travelling all over the country. I am also a Wedding Coordinator at my Church. I love to use my creativity at these beautiful times.

I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. My mother, grandmother and aunt played a major part in getting me interested. Unfortunately they are no longer here with me to enjoy my new adventure on Etsy. I know they are with me in spirit though.

Becoming a grandmother has been the best inspiration for me. I love creating these baby gifts for new moms. They are the talk of the showers. It is so much fun to give a gift that has character than just something put in a "bag".

Etsy opened up another avenue for me to promote my items.

I also do custom orders for anyone that has a need.

Love the pattern: wish I had the patience to do it. Do you, or do you know of anyone, who could create a pattern of an Otter that I could make up? Have just been given a whole heap of lovely material that one would make great Otters, but while I can make up toys once I have the pattern, am hopeless making a pattern from scratch. Any help or route map for me to try to find one would be much appreciated.
