Essay:

When I was 8 years old, my mother gave me a Singer portable sewing machine to play withÖ.thus began my love affair with creating things made of cloth. My passion carried me from making doll clothing to my own wedding dress. I have worn out three sewing machines in the process. Then I was diagnosed with Parkinsonís and felt as if my creative efforts would end, but to my surprise it had the opposite effect. When I create, my tremor is reduced or absent. I have just started a business of creating one-of-a-kind purses. I shall continue making my unique creations for as long as God helps me.

More of my purses can be seen at:
