I’m a stage manager with a professional theatre company on the central coast of California. Although my current job doesn’t require the substantial commute that my old job did, I still often feel like I have literally no time for anything! Having taken up sewing again recently (I had a basic knowledge from childhood, and then from college costuming courses), I was excited to discover a vibrant online community of people like me, finding time in their busy lives to just make something. This blog is my attempt to participate more actively in that community, and connect with people who also enjoy the crazy, frustrating, totally rewarding pastime of sewing. Because despite the fact that I work with a whole costume shop of people who sew for a living, everyone I know is totally surprised and shocked that I make clothes for fun in my no time!
