Hello, and welcome to my website about sewing and embroidery! Whether you’re a beginner to the craft or an avid seamstress, I hope that you find some useful information here and maybe even learn a thing or two!
My name is Betsy, and I have been sewing all my life. I grew up sort of in the middle of nowhere in the outskirts of Lincoln, Nebraska, and what do you know? I still live here!
Growing up, there wasn’t much to do in my town, so I spent my days sewing and learning with my mom. She was the best seamstress in our area. In fact, many folks would travel from Lincoln just to have her make or alter clothes for them.
My mom taught me the fine art of sewing, and I took to it right away. I was her assistant and her apprentice. She taught me everything from basic skills to sewing buttons, zippers, fancy stitches and embroidery. When we weren’t working, we’d make quilts, tablecloths, pillow shams, curtains and lots of other things together.
I also loved making dresses for my dolls, and as I got older, I started making my own clothes too. I went to a trade school for fashion design after high school, and today, I have my own sewing shop, and I also work as a wedding dress seamstress.
I created this site because I wanted to share my vast knowledge and frankly because I thought there needed to be an authority site online that focused on the best sewing products. It’s just too difficult to find a high-quality sewing machine and other sewing tools these days, especially if you don’t know what you should be looking for!
Please check out the different topics that I write about, and see for yourself. I truly hope that my site benefits you and your sewing skills.
