My Story

Welcome!  Thank you for stopping by my website. I'm Cindy and I'm a wife, mom, grandma, and cat mama who lives on the west side of the Great Lakes state. As a little girl, I was inspired by "Little House in the Big Woods" when Laura Ingalls sewed a nine patch quilt. My own first clothing project involved my Barbie doll. She was my first model for my very first template. I traced around Barbie to make a dress for her, using a paper bag for the pattern. When I proudly showed my mom, she asked where I got the idea to make a pattern like that. I happily replied, "Patterns are always brown like this, aren't they?"

And that was only the beginning and it grew my love for sewing and creating. Although it has always been a part of me, I had to set aside sewing after high school when my career led me down a different path. But my passion for sewing and design stayed with me. I couldn't walk past a fabric shop without stopping in to admire their collection.

For the past 20 years, I have been specializing in alterations and custom design - first for family and friends and eventually for those referred to me. I offer a wide variety of services including replacing a zipper in your coat or hemming your favorite skirt or pants, to working alongside you on your gown for your special day - and every type of project in between. It feels clear that God is leading me down the road where I started - the one He has always meant for me to walk since He created me.

My God-given talent is to help others through my love of sewing. Only through God's daily guidance can I achieve anything, and I look forward to working with you on your special designs!
