My mother made all my clothes and I had the best dressed Barbie in Dallas, Texas! Mama was my role model and inspiration. She could do anything she set her mind to. Owning a store like Sew Much Fun! has been a life long dream! I have always been crafty and started college as a Home Economics major, but ended up with a BS in Accounting (working in the tax field I guess you could say I was creative with numbers!) I have 3 grown sons, 7 grandchildren (4 girls, 3 boys) and a very supportive husband.

I have always loved crafts! My mother taught me to sew when I was ten and always encouraged me, even when I cut up her best fabric!! I have a degree in Home Economics from Appalachian. I love to sew and when I was introduced to machine embroidery, it was love at first sight! Working at Sew Much Fun is always a creative adventure for me. I teach various classes including Embroidery Mastery classes for your new BERNINA. I am married and have two grown children and two grandsons. Just another excuse to buy more fabric!! Hope to see you soon at Sew Much Fun!



  I have been sewing about as long as I can remember. One of the first lessons I learned from my mother was not to use her sewing scissors for anything else. We made almost everything I wore until I graduated from college and started teaching. When my students found out that I made some of my clothes, they told me that they “looked real.” I have knitted and cross-stitched from many years, but I have only been quilting for about two years. I consider myself “Queen of the Quilt Tops” as I have yet to finish any of the quilt tops I have sewn. I am envious of all of the beautiful projects that Sew Much Fun! customers start -- and finish.   Maybe one day . . .

 I had an interest in sewing when I was in middle school.  I took home economics and made a shirt that turned out pretty decent.  Needless to say, school and socializing got in the way and I lost interest.  I picked it back up when I got married.  My mother-in-law sewed all of her clothes while she was working a full time job.  I loved the way they looked and asked her to help me so she started me with an easy shirt pattern (easy for her) and I made a mess of it. My passion to sew was still strong so I joined a quilting club in my town.  A lovely, 80 year old woman instructed me in quilting and I have been quilting ever since.  That was over 30 years ago!  I am constantly learning and striving to improve with each project so I am thankful to be working at Sew Much Fun! to learn from the best and gain wisdom from our customers.

I started sewing when I was five years old. I wasn't allowed to use the sewing machine so I had to hand sew my Barbie clothes. My first job was in a large fabric store with the same name as me. I sewed garments for years and made my first quilt after my daughter was born. Twenty years later I'm still making quilt tops. I love the challenge of a new pattern or technique but get bored with the quilt once I know what it will look like finished. I have so many quilt tops. I am called the Queen of Acrylic because of my love of any new ruler or template. I love to teach quilting classes and work hard doing all your cutting and pressing in class so you will really miss me when you go home.

My love of sewing started in 7th grade, after being transferred from parochial school to public school.   After that I was hooked.   When my daughter was born I loved making her clothes.  In 1984 I made my first quilt.   I took all my scraps and took a children's golden book, and used that as my pattern.    I look at my quilts now and think wow, I have come a long way.    My family thinks that I am insane working in a quilt shop, but I think I am lucky being able to work and share my passion doing something I love.
Barb - Sales

MY name is Barb and I have lived in Australia most of my life.

My love of sewing started when I was young but being one of six children and the baby at that my Mum didn’t get to help me sew till I was a teenager. Only started to quilt a few years ago and just love to make them.

I live in South Carolina on a little farm with my kids big and small. My grandchildren are my world and have starting to teach my granddaughter to sew - a little bit of a hard task.

I am looking forward to learning   more about the different sewing machines as well as embroidery machines and hope in the future to be able to teach classes.

So happy to part of the staff at Sew Much Fun!
