About the author: I have been sewing practically all my life. I learned sitting across from my mother at her treadle sewing machine for hours on end. Today I spend most of my sewing time making costumes for our high school drama productions, which can be anything from historical to fanciful. Last summer I made five dresses for bridesmaids, each different vintage patterns, and decided I needed to do some sewing for myself. On a personal note, I am married with three grown sons, and two grandchildren with another on the way. My life is centered around these people I love, and I am truly blessed.

This site contributes to its own setup, maintenance, and expansion costs with the occasional affiliate link. For example, if you follow a link to Shopify (which does an amazing job of hosting our online store) and decide to sign up with them, they’ll know we sent you and will be much more inclined to bring out the best china when we pop over for a cup of tea. This is limited to products we think are genuinely noteworthy rather than a shady operation handing over an enormous bag of cash to say nice things about them.
