Welcome to my sewing blog, which is mostly about sewing (projects, clothes, and crafts) but veers off into hats and design on occasion.

I learned how to sew from my Mom, who made many of my clothes (and my sisters’ outfits) when I was growing up in small-town upstate New York. I love all things sewing (except when I have to rip out a seam!).
