Location: Aurora, Illinois

Hobbies: Antiquing, shopping – especially for shoes, reading, writing, but absolutely NOT arithmetic.

Favorite Type of Sewing: It is difficult to say as it depends on my mood. Currently I enjoy making small projects that make me smile such as ornaments, little stuffed robots, embroidered garlands and anything that incorporates selvage edges.

I was the little girl who asked her parents every year for a sewing machine and got every present under the sun BUT a sewing machine. Ironically, when I purchased my own high-end European made machine, I loved it so much that I started working for a store that carried the brand. Several years later I am typing up this description from BERNINA's corporate headquarters in the US where I am so happy to be working in the field that I am passionate about.
