About Kathy

darning mushroomI learned how to sew at my Grandmothers knee and the first thing she taught me was how to darn a stocking using a wooden mushroom (remember those?)! Sewing was more of a necessity in those days than the hobby it is today. Remember those fabulous patchwork quilts? Many have become heirlooms to pass down through the generations and with the right tools you’ll be able to create your own heirlooms. These patchwork quilts were made from old clothes, everything was recycled in times of austerity.
