Introduction: I enjoy the process of turning fabric into a useable design, the fabric is my canvas. I have dressed many windows, covered cushions of many shapes, turned wedding gowns into christening gowns, repaired clothing to like new. Made dozens of baby quilts. I love the details, the brainstorming of planning and accomplishment.

Bernadette is a fantastic seamstress. She has made drapes and curtains for every room in our house. She took the time to go shopping with me and help pick out appropriate fabrics. Bernadette has also done hemming and other alterations. She is meticulous. She makes all of her own clothes and looks like a model. I cannot rave about her enough!
