I’m Joanna and I like to sew.

By day i’m a computer nerd, and at night i knit, sew or do other crafty things.  It’s like a disease.

Most of my work is by word of mouth and I only do custom commissions.

I work with my clients from the concept to the finished object.  You might already know what you want, or you might need some help.  Working together, we design a garment that is just what you want.  Then I make it so it fits you perfectly.

A lot of ready-to-wear techniques have permeated home sewing.  I like traditional finishes – hand rolled hems and no visible stitching on the outside of the garment unless it’s a feature.  This means it takes a bit longer, and costs a bit more than what you can get off the shelf.  What you can’t get off the shelf is a garment that is custom fitted to your figure.

It’s not just garments either, I like little bags and wraps and all that other cute stuff that make an outfit.
