I sew because I love it. It’s my therapy. It’s something I can focus on, to still my mind, and to escape from my daily grind. I also teach, and to share my skills with others is a very rewarding experience.
The reasons I sew have changed throughout the years. I started with clothes and ballet costumes, progressed to home furnishings. Now quilting is my passion and therapy. I mostly make patchwork quilts based on patterns I see and want to try. I make various style bags and give them away as gifts. With my quilts, I keep some but also give them away to family and friends or donate to charity.
