Keeper of the Tape
I started sewing at 9 years old. Yes, I was that child who cut old table cloths to make floral printed dresses for her stuffed animals. Two decades later, I quit a steady career in teaching to start my own business in the apparel industry, creating patterns and samples for indie brands like Francisca&D, Nala Design & The Batik Boutique. It's been a couple more decades and I can't seem to stop (yes, I have tried). So with a sense of joyous resignation, I continue to create custom clothing and commercial patterns, and find time to teach drafting and sewing at my studio and online.
