Hi Everyone. My name is Beth and I'm in Northeastern Pennsylvania, transplanted from the West Coast. I can say I truly love it here, with all the trees and wildlife. On cold snowy days I love to stay indoors in my recently remodeled sewing room and sew. Like today, that's where I'm headed.

I've been sewing for over 35 years, off and on. I've sewn all kinds of things and now much prefer to do more simple stuff, such as jackets and tops, etc., now with a little embellishment. (I used to make suits, and draperies, etc.) I prefer the challenge of embellishment and changing design and recently took a patternmaking class, which I loved. I also quilt.
