I've been working with sewing machines on and off since I was 8 or 9. However, my patience didn’t show up until my 30's when a simple jacket pattern and broken sewing machine turned a bit of dabbling into an outright obsession. I have a BA in photography and have always felt a passion for the arts. In 2009 I began the Charm Stitch blog where I post tutorials, pattern reviews and essays on other sewing mishaps. I live in Maryland with my husband and two young daughters and I find inspiration in a house full of controlled chaos and discarded tiaras. I am a big believer that sewing from your stash is over-rated.
