Favorite Stitch: Bullion Roses, Feather Stitch

I’ve always been around creative people. One of my earliest memories is of my Dad sitting behind a sewing machine making silk neck ties for gifts. My uncle worked in a high end fabric store and he gave us remnants of luscious silk, cotton, and velvet fabrics. I always had great fabrics to play with and loved visiting him at work. A fabric store was my happy place, then and now!

My mother’s housekeeper probably had the biggest influence on me regarding sewing. She tried teaching me to cook and I certainly didn’t want any part of cooking!

I used to watch my grandmother sit at the Singer treadle sewing machine making dresses and quilts. That machine is what I started sewing on. I took several classes through SAGA.

Favorite Stitch: Shadow Work Stitch

I had been doing cross-stitch and needlepoint for many years when I decided to tackle smocking. I couldn’t seem to get enough of this beautiful art! Then I had the challenge of putting outfits and dresses together. My first real heirloom experience was at the Martha Pullen school. After a challenging 4 days, I finally completed my first heirloom party dress.

 Favorite Stitch:  bullion roses and little lazy daisy flowers

My mother taught me to do counted cross stitch with her when I was a little girl, and from there, I learned to do other types of needle arts. What really made me excited about sewing was having a baby girl to sew for.
