I am so excited to tell you about my latest project. Finally, after years of thinking about it, I am releasing a series of how-to videos. I love the idea of teaching and passing on my knowledge. Sewing is a dying art and I don't want to see it become obsolete.

The first in the series will be How To Make Pillows and will include instructions for making a knife-edge pillow, a self-welted pillow and a ruffled pillow. From cutting out the fabric to making welting and installing a zipper, I will show you, step-by-step, how to do it. I think it makes all the difference if you are shown how to do something. And with your own DVD, you can watch over and over until you get it. Each DVD will be crammed full of tips, shortcuts and ideas to make sewing easier and more enjoyable. You will also be able to e-mail me with specific questions or concerns. Even if you don't sew yourself, this will make a great gift.

The pictures below are example of what I'll be teaching you.
