About Heidi

My name is Heidi and I live in Grass Valley, in northern California,  near Lake Tahoe. People have asked about my past experiences in fabric arts and design. It all started when, at my mother’s sewing table, I’d design and make outfits for my Barbie doll.

I am excited to start this blog which will help me to  clear the clutter, to find time, and find the balance to create.  I love anything to do with fabric and clothing and accessories.  I owned a full service fabric store for 16 years and took 12 years off to be a full-time wife and mother.  I have a very supportive husband and one son who is a junior in college.

I have a vision:  to create and sell clothing patterns, and repurposed clothing, through this blog.  Also in the works is to write a book (with an already published friend) about creative clothing and accessories.  I do have two vest patterns being sized at the “pattern grader” right now.  I also have an article in “Belle Armoire” magazine which came out in June detailing the process for a repurposed, machine-felted sweater. This is a fresh start for me, utilizing current technology with you to show, explain and exchange creative ideas in clothing and other areas of the creative arts.

  1. Hey Heidi, this is great! Way to go! I’ll be asking you for blogging tips 🙂 The pic of you on the home page is cute (love the mag and your top), and now I’m going to “wander” around your blog.


  2. Heidi, this is Helen Tellyer from the Tuleburg Quilt Guild in Stockton. I need your address so I can send you a contract for your trunk show/lecture on April 13th. Also, your fee and mileage.

    1. Hi Tina,
