zatorskijoanJoan Zatorski, Tucson, AZ, US
I have fibromyalgia, a neurological-muscular disorder, the symptoms of which forced me to leave the teaching profession I loved so dearly. Over time, my interest in sewing was resurrected from its Junior HIgh School burial and I've discoered the creative joy of transforming fabric & thread into apparel and home decor items.
I now design and make maternity tops as well as infant and children's clothes, 100% of which I donate to families in need at the Arizona/Mexico border. In this way, I am still connected to young children and experience a similar satisfaction and happiness to what I felt when I was teaching on Long Island, New York.
craft interests: sewing, infant needs: blankets, diaper bags etc.
