About MeI am a 'professional' volunteer now after having 3 sucessful careers in nursing, psych and country club management. My life is happy with my hubby Carl of 33 yrs and my amazing son Kyle who is 24 and a youth minister at two Catholic churches. Getting him through college and a sucessful, centered and happy person is THE best feeling a mom can have!! At age 50 I decided to challenge myself to something difficult to overcome each year on my birthday. Sewing was my worst fear as I was a flunkie in jr.high home ec. Ironically my mom was the town seamstress. She designed swanky ballroom style evening gowns, wedding parties and even altered the firemen uniforms!!! I instead wanted to be an artist backpacking my way through Europe. Didn't happen, luckily. But I hated sewing. I have hot glued pants hems, super glued buttons on shirts and worse. With the technology we have today I have been teaching myself sewing skills through YouTube tutorials and friends through Facebook sewing groups. In addition to sewing for friends and family I have been involved in Lutheran World Baby Care kits which is an international mission sending layette sets to places in need. I have sewn hundreds of flannel baby diapers and baby kimono style nightgowns. I just began sewing warm hoodies with matching pants. I have just entered my 5th year of volunteering with this group. When I came across " Dress A Girl " I decided to volunteer for another mission that is needed in our world!!
