Sew and Sew.....and sew, and sew, and sew......

Welcome to my  sewing blog! I am new to blogging, but my 35 year career as a custom dressmaker, alterations specialist, art-to-wear designer, sewing instructor, and sewn product developer makes me think that I might be able to share some neat stuff in a blog.
 It will be fun to create posts that pass along my knowledge of fantastic sewing techniques. I work, and teach in a wonderful studio that is heated in the winter by a cozy fireplace.

I am frequently joined by Sophie. She is a sweet girl whose curly fur sports threads that match my current project!

 Caffeine is  essential to prolific creativity, so there are pots of tea until 3:00 when espresso is served.

So hours fly by in this sewing studio.....
My motto has always been "Life is wonderful when you do for a living what you would do for nothing if you could afford it".
 I feel blessed that I have been able to make my passion a business. I want to share what I have learned with you.


  1. Hi Patty.... so glad I found your new blog and I've just enjoyed reading your posts to date and am looking forward to reading what you share with us over the coming months and years :)
