When did you first start sewing and how did you learn?


Can you remember the first thing you made?

A tooth pillow for my first lost tooth

Do you have any favourite pattern designers or celebrity sewers?


What's your sewing room like and how do you organize your stash?

My sewing room is a large walk in hall closet. It was originally our youngest bedroom as she likes silence and darkness when she slept but when we moved her out I snuck right in! My favorite organizational element is I use the gorgeous little glass jars that yogurt here in France comes in to hold and display my thread. I have it organized by color and it just makes me so happy to have all the bobbins with all the spools right there looking at me :)

What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to stitch along to?

I usually listen to my pandora station which I have honed over the years. I get mad if my hubby thumbs up or down anything with out consulting first ha!

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

Aside from my photography and sewing I love reclaiming items for decor. Just tonight on the way home from the movies I raced to get in front of the garbage truck to rescue some old window panes. Its amazing what gems you can find on the streets of Paris.
