Raised in LaPorte County, IN., Mother was an excellent seamstress that could and did make anything except shoes on her mothers old Singer treadle machine. My sister and I began learning to sew on that old treadle machine. In the mid-50s Mom traded that in for a new Singer. We were in 4-H from the ages of 9 until 16 and 18 and learned even more about sewing. I enjoy sewing gifts for others, clothing and home dec. I also enjoy crafts that require sewing, sewing magazines, and decorating magazines. Also I am into U.S. History, especially Revolutionary and Civil War periods. Married, three grown children, one is married. No grandchildren.
