In 2001, I was diagnosed with stage 3 Lobular Breast Cancer. As you can imagine, it changed my whole outlook on life.
Previous to this diagnosis, I had burned out in nursing & gone through a divorce.
In 1991, I remarried a wonderful man & have now been married 27 years!
After always liking to do sewing & craft projects, I took a class on painting on fabric & that bloomed into painting on sweatshirts & T-Shirts & selling them for 6 years at a local Farmers Market & small local craft fairs.
The treatment for my cancer took 2 years since I was also diagnosed with Lymes disease. Through many prayers from my friends & myself, I'm now celebrating my 17th year as a cancer survivor!( In 2017 I was diagnosed with Bone Marrow Cancer. It's not curable but can be kept from spreading with the "oral" chemo pills that I'm taking. They caught it early so I have many more years to live & sew!)
So when I was back on my feet again, I wanted to do more sewing. God lead me to meet up with a lady who has done sewing her whole life & was teaching a class on how to make a Reversible Jacket. I had signed up to take her class.. Lo & behold, she was a Liver Transplant survivor, &, now, a Colon cancer survivor! We have been close friends & sewing together now for approx. 12 years.
My "Creative Fabric Purses" business was started in 2009 after having many of my friends ask me if I could make them a purse like the one I had just made. Of course, I had to make them one. I love working with all the beautiful & colorful fabrics that are out on the market today.
I find many of my fabrics at vendor booths at quilting shows & on road trips with my friends to different fabric shops throughout the state.
