I am a retired teacher and school counselor. I keep busy now with sewing, machine embroidery and quilting. I also teach sewing to young people at our local recreations center. If I can only die when my fabric is used up, I will live forever. I have a full head of white hair and an equal number of patterns I am going to make someday!

My sewing interests are:
garment, home decor, quilting, embroidery
My sewing machine(s):

I am interested in patterns such as:
