I learned to sew in the 7th grade. I continue sewing to this day. I have always loved sewing costumes. My first memory is a Pilgram costume I made for myself at the age of 13. I sewed costumes for my younger brother and then for my children. I sew costumes for friends and their children and now I'm sewing for a grand-daughter. If I'm not sewing costumes, I'm sewing quilts.
