Q. How long have you been sewing?  Who taught you?

I have been sewing since I was twelve.  I have always loved fabric.  Before I learned to sew, I used to make Barbie clothes out of my mom’s left over fabric from her sewing projects.  It was always just cutting the fabric and wrapping it around the dolls.  I took Home Economics in middle school and that was the best.  I loved it.

Q.  What influences the colors and patterns you decide to use?

I am influenced by the world around me.
