About Me


Hello, welcome to my blog!
My name is Janlynn and I love to sew.  It all started in grade 5 when I had to make a tote bag in Home Ec. class.  I was hooked.  I asked for a sewing machine for Christmas.  Luckily Santa, and my parents, recognized that I was committed to developing my skills and my passion.  I have been sewing ever since, with a few breaks)

I will sew anything and everything I can, from practical items for my home to special occasion dresses.

I also like to knit, bead, craft, and make cards.

We bought a funky 1970's house in a beautiful neighbourhood.  The house was not so beautiful but the price was.  We have been updating, renovating, redecorating,and renewing since we moved in.  I am acting as the general contractor on the renovations - planning, designing, buying supplies, hiring and firing.

I am married and have two of my three "babies" still at home and attending school.  And I have a puppy!

I would really like my blog to inspire others to sew.  With a little practise and and a little patience everyone can learn to sew.  I am happy to share my knowledge and experience with everyone.
