Hi All. I am a self taught seamstress. I love love love everything sewing! "I will sew before I eat." I love experimenting and creating new things and always looking into ways of improving upon my current skills. I feel like sewing and creating has always been in my soul every since I was a child; I am so glad the universe has pulled me to this Divine experience of synchronicity with sewing.
