My First Post!

This is uncharted territory for me – so y’all have to bear with me! Although the tagline refers to Heirloom Sewing, I also enjoy sewing garments, gifts and quilts. I have 5 granddaughters and two grandsons for whom I enjoy sewing/creating. Journey with me as I share my love of sewing with you.

The Sewing & Stitchery Expo, held at the fairgrounds in Puyallup WA, was this weekend. 4 days of vendors, shows, classes and fun! This event is almost an annual pilgrimage for me, for over 20 years now. Dedie, a very good family friend, and I spent all day on Thursday. Saw lots of bright, colorful fabrics, wonderful (and tempting) notions, met friends – both new and old. A fun time was had by all!

I visited with another long-time friend, Nadeen Ward (on right in photo) of “Dolls R Sew Fun”. She designs patterns for 18″ dolls, carrying supplies & accessories and now ~ a book on sewing for dolls. Great work, Nadeen!

About Old2New Heirlooms

An avid sewer ever since childhood, I have sewn countless garments, pillowcases, quilts, and more for family and friends. My passion is Heirloom sewing (also known as French sewing) but all projects are fun!
