About the Class
This Sewing Caddy holds a lot of your sewing essentals. With pockets on the outside, and I add pockets to the inside, there is plenty of organizational room. The wire frame helps the bag stay open wide so you can easily find what you need. It has become one of my favorite grab bags for my sewing needs. Don’t let making bags scare you. We’ll work step by step to make it easy. There will be prep work to be done before class.

I grew up sewing with my mom, mainly clothing. I sewed clothing because I had to if I wanted
clothes for school. I sewed crafts because I loved to! Interest in crafts led to quilting. As a youth, I made many
whole top quilts by tying them. I made my first real quilt for my parents 50 th wedding anniversary. I designed it
around drawings my daughter drew of all the grandchildren. Most of it was made through trial and error, with
a little bit of help from books and quilt shops. That was the beginning of my addiction. I continued to make
quilts and to teach myself different techniques. As my last of 5 children entered high school, I tried to figure
out what I wanted to do with my life. I had taught elementary school before and debated on entering that
field again, but it didn’t feel right. The opportunity came to work for a quilt shop, and I jumped at it.
Discovered at the quilt shop, that I could combine my loves of learning, quilting, and teaching! For the past
10+ years I have had the privilege of sharing my knowledge with others as I have taught machine classes,
embroidery classes and piecing classes. I’m a proud wife and mom of 5 kids, all married to awesome spouses
and best of all, I have 8 grandchildren that love to sew along with me.
