about me.

Hi.  I'm Whitney.  I studied costume and fashion design at Houston Community College and I've been sewing for 37 years. I've sewn all the Disney princess costumes as well as various cartoon/gaming costumes. I've sewn for the costume director at The American School in Japan.  I sew purses,  home décor and holiday decorations.  I do mending and alterations.  I recently completed four years managing the Klein Cain High School Marching Band uniforms.    I sew tshirt quilts which make the perfect graduation gift.  I love sewing my own swimsuits!  Who really wants to try on bathing suits at a store anyway?  I sew clothes and I'm currently in the process of replacing my wardrobe with an entirely me made ensemble.   I previously owned a business for custom sewing, alterations and instruction but I'm taking a break from that to enjoy new projects and new experiences.

I love to spread the love of sewing.  I've taught friends, neighbors and school kids the basics of sewing.  I love watching the joy in a person's face when they've made something of their own.

Now with mostly grown kids and a traveling husband I have a lot of sewing time on my hands.  My goal for sewing is to grow my skill every day and enjoy the craft my family has passed down for generations.  I hope to meet others who sew and spread my love of sewing to beginners.
