Introduction Nice to meet you! I love to sew! In fact, sewing is almost more of an obsession than a hobby; I live to sew. I've been stitching and sewing for over 40 years, learning from my mother and seeming to inherit a "natural ability" from my grandmother, who sewed anything and everything for her family. My sewing journey has included earning a BFA in Fiber Arts studying under M. Joan Lintalut and training and working as a National Sewing Educator for Bernina of America, Inc. Currently I make art and teach others creative sewing, quilting, and color theory skills in the greater Chicago area. Find some of my classes at the Evanston Art Center.
Interests Vintage sewing machines, vintage patterns, vintage sewing books, vintage notions, fabrics, and fashions.
