I want to sew…

What’s up? I’m Elizabeth

I’m a wife and mama to 4, sewing nerd and refashionista with a passion for DIY.

Learning to sew has been one of the best things in my life. The more seams I’ve ripped out, the more I’ve honed my skills and come to love this wonderful craft. My goal is to give you the information you need to shortcut your sewing learning and make you a confident sewist who’s not afraid to improv a little.

Let’s sew something creative together!
