I've never given a second thought to being an artist. I started making small passport sized bags while living in Kansas City in the late 80's. After years of hard work fixing up two houses, and having been a contributing editor for Country Living magazine, I started thinking about those little bags that I had made less than 10 years ago. I wanted to create that feeling again so I started my sewing pattern business. My company, my brand, is really just a great vehicle to share my work.
