Hello fellow makers! We are so excited you are here! We thought we would introduce our selves. We are a mother daughter team who have been sewing ever since I can remember. Nine years ago Janette had a wild idea to start a sewing school. Everyone thought she was crazy, including me! You would think I would know by now to listen to my mother. I went along with her dream as we both have a lot to share when it comes to sewing. We have had hundreds of students come through our school. We have loved teaching all of these beautiful girls (and a handful of boys) the love of sewing.
Janette sewed for an interior decorator for 20 years. I remember coming home from school and sitting on the bean bag in my mom's sewing room and talking about my day. I think I learned to love sewing through osmosis. ;) I have to admit, I didn't love sewing growing up. Mom taught 4-H and I remember liking it, but I wasn't sold.
As an adult, I began sewing again when pregnant with my first child. I needed something to supplement our income while my husband finished his schooling, and I found sewing. At first it started out as a job to help out our little family, but soon I was spending every free hour sewing when I discovered quilting. I was obsessed.
A little about Janette...she loves gardening. Like really loves it! As soon as those tulips start poking out of the ground, you will find her playing in the dirt. She also loves camping. Janette and Gus will always be planning their next adventure. They love taking their fifth wheel, lovingly named "Fatty" and adventuring together. They also love spoiling their 8 grandchildren on Cuzndays and Cuzncations (adventures with grandma & pa and cousins). There is always something new for them to see!
And a little about me... I have three amazing kids and a wonderful hubby. They keep me busy beyond measure! My oldest is in college (how did that happen?!) and has moved out of the house. My middle daughter is constantly singing, playing her guitar or working on her theater parts. And my youngest daughter is forever baking or playing softball. We are so lucky to be in this crazy mess! As for me, if I am not sewing, I am knitting...at the ballpark, waiting for carpool, sitting outside, you get the idea. It helps me stay calm in this busy time of life. You can see some of my stuff in the "Handmade Gifts" collection. Go check it out!
Our combined love for sewing has truly brought us closer together. We are so excited to start this new adventure! We hope that we can share a little but of our passion with you!
