I like to call myself the Kitchen Seamstress for a very simple reason. My sewing room is the in the kitchen. I've been married for half of my life. I have two daughters, one 19 and one 17. I also live with 2 Guinnea Pigs, 1 Chinchilla, 1 Bearded Dragon and 8 Hamsters. Yep I have a pretty full house!
I started sewing about 15 years ago, just so I could make minor adjustments to clothes. 13 years ago, I developed Fibromyalgia and had to quit work. I wasn't as mobile as I used to be, but I was used moving around. I had to come up with a way to keep my mind busy during those times where my body was out of commission. I bought out my crochet hooks and my collection of books. I started crocheting and reading anything I could get my hands on. One day I found an old book on learning to quilt. I read it and though.t I could do that. I had basic sewing skills and an old machine, so I just went for it. And I got hooked! Then I figured, what the heck try to sew something other then quilts. A a star was born!
