My name is Michelle and I live on northern Vancouver Island, off the west coast of Canada. I live in an isolated rural community. I started sewing when I was 13. I sew clothing for my kids mostly, and occasionally for my friends and myself. I also sew for the local dance school where my kids take classes. I want to make tutus and bodices. I also love to bake, garden, cross-stitch, embroider and crochet which doing housework interferes with.
