Since my teens, I have been making my own clothing both sewing and knitting. The sewing stuck through the years and I made my own wedding dress, and then moved on to making clothes for our children. My aunt introduced me to quilting and I was hooked! She and I have since been participating in a once a year, Arts and Crafts show and I just love talking with everyone who visits our booth.
I wanted to expand on the ability to sell what I make and have my own store on Etsy where I feature quilts, quilt patterns, and upcycled totes and scarves. While I am a middle school Social Studies teacher during the school year, I love creating things and make the most of my weekends and summers. Fabric makes me happy and I hope you find something that inspires you!
I blog at http://midwestmadeusa.weebly.com/ with both quilting ideas and what I am sewing/designing.
