I’ve been sewing off and on since I was about 12. In the last year I’ve become enthralled and the extremely beautiful gift of a Pfaff Smarter 160S for my 25th birthday gave me the idea to start a blog about my adventures in sewing land (wouldn’t that be a great theme park!).
My grandmother started teaching me how to sew when I was just a little girl, but at the time I lacked interest. Sometime between college and grad school I started looking for a creative distraction from studying and job hunting and working part time. While painting Van Gogh by numbers and knitting did not satisfy my creative needs, a chance encounter with a vintage replica pattern did. Slowly but surely I have been sewing more and more and plan to use this blog to document my successes and failures.
I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures and share some of your own experiences.
