Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers!

This week I am taking a break from making and planning.  I am instead cleaning and organizing.  As the weather gets colder, and I get more introspective, I like to remember what the year has brought to me.  I am grateful as always to my family, especially my sister, who is a huge support to me.  I am grateful to my students, both offline and online who followed me, trusted me, and shared their learning with me.  I am grateful for my stash, my 3 sewing machines, and a dedicated studio!  I am grateful for the works I was able to complete and show.

I am grateful that I live in a beautiful, peaceful place like NC., where in November, azaleas still bloom outside  my window.  And of course, I am grateful to my daughters, my ex and his wife for all their support and love.  This has not been an easy year for us, but I think we have all pulled together in an amazing way.

What else?  I am grateful I got to teach in Houston for the first time, and that I have been invited back!  And I am really grateful for the growth I have accomplished with the help of my coaching team at Uplevel You, with Christine Kane.

And last but not least, I am grateful for Huey, who has brought humor, love and sweetness to my life in only a way that a kitten can.


And lest I forget, many thanks to the staff at Bernina World of Sewing, who has put up with my many blunders as I learn the ins and outs of the store.

I hope you have a terrific Thanksgiving!

New 6 month Private Coaching Masterclass!

 I have extended my private coaching program, from 3 months to 6 months.  I believe the transformation my students are looking for must take place over a longer period of time to have a lasting impact.
