I have always loved to sew. That comes from my grandma. She had nine children all growing up in the late 30’s-40’s and she needed to be a seamstress out of necessity. I love that the recession has created a true renewal of all things sewing/crafting. I think one of the reasons my husband wanted this house was to give me an enormous space for all my “stuff”. It is actually bigger than any of the kids bedrooms, maybe the biggest room in the house. My wish for any crafter is to find a space to create. It only took me close to 30years to get this one! Enjoy!
