Profile for SewPassionista - Threads


Scotchtown, NB, CA

I'm a retired High School teacher who is passionate about sewing.Since my retirement eight years ago, I worked in a fabric store for 6 years, and have developed my sewing skills to a higher level, thanks to the extra time I have to sew , the internet, blogging and Sandra Betzina who has been a great inspiration to me.
I sew for myself and my daughter mostly . I mentor a sewing group in my community on Thursdays and love every minute.
I sometimes think I'm obsessed with sewing and thank goodness I have a husband who is very supportive of my interests.

Re: Orange Evening Dress

Your dress is lovely. I do know what you mean about the mature body and not finding anything appropriate to wear. Aren't we lucky that we sew and can accomplish just the right look for our figures!
