hello there!

welcome to the long awaited (for me, at least) new site for a happy stitch.  i’ve been sewing and even blogging for a bit but this marks the beginning of making it a bigger,grander part of my everyday.  in January I left my paid job when my passion for that work was overshadowed by a strong desire to find more time for my family, my kids and my (what was then) hobby.  tentatively but steadily, i moved ahead with bringing my love of sewing center stage in my day.  i started teaching some classes, quietly opened an etsy shop and found myself hooked up with kevin trainor, who made this site possible.  i now have lots of time with my kids and sew the heck out the time away from them.  consider me outed—sewing geek extraordinaire.

thanks for stopping in, be sure to check back as i stumble, trip through sewing, selling and teaching!
