Creating a sustainable business from fabric, art and crafts
I'm Olivia, I sew, cook and am part of a blended family. My husband Steve and I have nine children, four are his, five are mine. We have six girls and three boys ages 13-25. I learned to sew from my grandma Mary, my dad's mom. She made beautiful Raggedy-Ann and Andy dolls, pillows and clothes for her children when they were younger. I spent many weekends with her stuffing legs and arms, going to the fabric store and on occasion I went to shows with her to sell her beautiful makes. I had my first daughter at 19 and wanted to make her a blanket. I used my grandma's sewing machine and she guided me along the way, I think Mary, my oldest, still might have that blanket. Over the years I have sewn a variety of dolls, plush cuties, pillows and just started getting into sewing clothes. Welcome to my adventures in sewing, being part of a big family and my small part of the internet.
