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 and 9 grandchildren (5 girls, 4 boys).

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 am originally from Cary, NC and have lived all over NC, some in SC, VA, and MD.  I grew up with various handmade pieces of clothing from my mom as a kid, so I’m sure she has a lot to do with my creative mind. My mom signed me up for a sewing class one summer at G Street Fabrics in MD when I was eleven.  I wasn’t the happiest about it, but after was so excited that I signed up for every class after that from pattern making to various apparel making classes. I was hooked and got my first Bernina 1001 not long after that. Sewing has continued to be in my life through working and growing up in a bridal and formal wear shop, taking high school fashion design classes, sewing costumes for family and friends, and most recently quilting with my mom and sewing various items for charity through a sewing ministry at church.  One thing not everyone knows about me is that I was a professional photographer for many years taking pictures at weddings, special events and even running multiples portrait studios.  

 My husband Luke and I have two fur babies named Blue and Beulah.

I started sewing around the age of 10 when I joined girl scouts. I had fun making clothes and dresses during high school. Married my high school sweetheart just before he went to boot camp.

We have 4 children, 3 girls and a boy. I loved dressing our 3 daughters in matching dresses for as long as they let me. Made all the usual dresses, gowns and even a wedding dress for a family friend.   Life was sweeter when we were blessed with our first granddaughter, and I began smocking dresses for her.

After many years in the corporate world, it was time to retire. I needed a hobby or something to keep me busy. A very dear friend introduced me to quilting.  It is an addicting pleasure! Made numerous quilts quilted them using edge to edge embroidery.  I was totally hooked.  Quilting was my sanity during the shutdown,  it still is! My latest challenge is bags.  

I started working at Sew Much Fun in Sept 2021 and was introduced to the world of Bernina.  All I can say is wow. Bought my first Bernina and absolutely love it! Why did I wait so long to become a proud owner of a Bernina sewing machine.  I love working here and seeing all the creations that emerge from our customers!

My mother made and designed her own clothes most of her life.  She began teaching me to sew when I was around the age of ten.  I began making more garments once I took Home Economics in high school.  After getting married, I sewed only occasionally due to lack of time.  I switched to cross stitching as it was an easy project to take with me.  As my daughter got older, I taught myself how to knit so I would have something to do in the school pickup line. 

I had long had an interest in quilting and took my first class in 2011.  I fell in love with the process.  Quilting provides me with a creative outlet and is my self-care.  I purchased my first Bernina in 2014.  I love my 350 and made many quilts using this machine.  I love free motion quilting and in 2023 I added a 790 plus.  I am in love with the BSR.

I began working at Sew Much Fun in 2023.  Working at the shop is my bucket list job.  I love helping customers pick out fabric for their quilts.  I love getting to know long time customers and new customers.  My co-workers at the shop are wonderful and we have Sew Much Fun.

My first sewing experience began before I entered first grade.  My Mother started me with cardboard animals that had holes punched in them.  I connected the holes with yarn threaded through a plastic needle.  I had fun with these for hours.  That started it all!  Over the years I began stamped cross stitch and in fifth grade my Mother taught me how to sew.  I made most of my clothes for many years.  I began counted cross stitch on linen and continue to enjoy that hobby.

  I began quilting in 2004 by taking a block of the month class and have been quilting ever since.  Of course I enjoy quilting different patterns, really like making wall hangings, but love the challenge of tackling a Laura Heine collage project.  I have completed three of her patterns and have more waiting to be made.

  Sew Much Fun! has the best selection of fabric in this area with new shipments arriving all the time!  I can’t say enough about the awesome staff here, always helpful and extremely pleasant; the best co-workers I’ve ever had.  Stop by Sew Much Fun!, we will be happy to assist you with your current project or help you find a new one!
