For most of my life I was a stay at home mom and substitute school teacher. Decided what I really loved was sewing, so now I run a custom sewing/embroidery/alterations business out of my home. Love it.

Went to fashion design school many, many years ago. Hated the business world, so I joined the Navy. After 22 years, I retired as a senior chief. Now I work in education as a software tech support analyst. Haven’t stopped sewing since I started at age 13.
