Hiya, I’m Jane and I love to sew. I’ve lived in Denver, Colorado for the past 10 years but spent most of my formative years in St. Louis, Missouri. And by day I am a part-time librarian at the local law school.
I have been sewing since I was a teenager. As a girl, I used to watch my mother sewing and insisted there were better ways to do it. She “kindly” bequeathed me her sewing machine & I’ve never looked back. I’ve taken a few formal classes (anyone remember Clothworld?) but mostly self taught. I went through a long dry spell of not sewing (2001 – 2008). After coming to terms with my aging (read: shifting) body I’ve picked up the habit again. I am rather dull and sew only dresses but I love them.
I joined DSC in April 2009 and LOVE IT. I have met the most amazing people. I would be lost without my sewing friends.
When I’m not sewing I love to read, cook, garden and hula-hoop. I am a terribly big fan of eating too which requires me to exercise regularly to support that habit. I think Netflix is brilliant and could bore you to tears about all the great sci-fi, mystery, & period shows I love to watch. I also spend a lot of time on Pinterest culling ideas for my next sewing project.

Look at this cute dress (see the actual photos). Pattern, plus 1 or 2 inches in length, is cute. I like it in a print. http://www.etsy.com/listing/163639151/red-velvet-knit-dress-cake-patterns-0369?ref=listing-shop-header-2 Have you made any Cake dresses?
