I have loved sewing and crafting since I was little. Some of my best memories of growing up are of my friend and I hanging out in my backyard or in my room doing crafts. I spent my childhood making clothes and furniture for my dolls with glue, foam, fabric, and whatever other scraps I could get my hands on. Then I moved on to simple sewing projects. I think everyone I knew got fleece scarves one winter, and pillows and stuffed animals for their birthdays. Gradually, without anyone really realizing it, sewing took over my free time. I now make everything from stuffed animals and toys to purses, bags, wallets, clothing, electronics cases, semi-custom embroideries and more. I currently have six sewing machines (a standard Babylock sewing machine, a Babylock embroidery machine, a Janome serger, and three old Singers in cabinets) and love them all. I’ve been forbidden to bring home any more, that hasn’t stopped me from looking.
