mender, fixer and lover of sewing
Hi. I'm Whitney. I've been sewing for 35 years. In that time I've sewn almost all the Disney Princess costumes, various cartoon/gaming costumes and I've sewn for the costume director at The American School in Japan and where ever else my children participated in theater productions. I sew purses, home décor and holiday decorations. I do mending and alterations for family and friends. I manage my son's high school marching and concert band uniform department. I sew tshirt quilts. I sew clothes and I'm currently in the process of replacing my wardrobe with an entirely me made ensemble. I am also looking to learn new things and expand my knowledge base to patternmaking and expert fitting for custom made garments.
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.
