“I have been creating with my hands since I was a young girl…”



I have been creating with my hands since I was a young girl. My academic studies led me to a M. S. degree in Chemical Engineering. The pursuit of that career was put on hold with the birth of my first child and the gift of my first sewing machine. On that machine, I have stitched hundreds of miles, producing clothes and accessories for myself, kids, friends and family. I also enjoy knitting, crocheting and crafting. 

I started my business to create “practical, yet pretty” items including tote bags, headbands, wine totes and aprons. I also like to upcycle T shirts, sweatshirts, coffee bags and other items into new designs. I have sewn many T Shirt quilts over the years and developed and wrote an easy-to-follow pattern to create a T Shirt Memory Blanket. I blog about my creative life and have developed straight-forward tutorials to solve simple problems or create practical items. My sewing studio has evolved to be a custom sewing studio. I have had the opportunity to create unique products for my clients using the ideas they bring to me.

My non-creative pursuits include listening to music, reading, biking, and searching for sea glass on the shores of Lake Erie.
