Tell us a little about yourself. I have bright red hair, green eyes, used to be 5'6" before all the babies, adore my husband, and am an early morning person. My alarm rings at 3:30 am for my quiet time, then I write, sew, paint, or plan school!
What was your motivation behind this project? Victorian Sewing & Quilting were again for Chantelle, our second daughter, to quench that thirst for the lost arts of quilting, beading, making things elegant, Victorian, luxurious to see and touch. She continues to sew and make beaded jewelry and embellishments for various clothing and projects.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope we've done most of the work for you, and you can relax and enjoy learning with the children. I hope students and moms will enjoy learning those lost arts of quilting, sewing, beading, and more.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I love Tasha Tudor and her lifestyle. I like unit studies because the children remember what they learned so much better and longer.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I hold a Bachelor of Science. Along with my husband Mark, I homeschooled our 8 children on our Gentlemans Farm in south Florida. Now we reside in Georgia. We began homeschooling around 1984 and have used a variety of teaching styles to teach the various subjects. Latching onto unit studies aided with teaching our multi-age group of children, and helped the children grasp and master the topics.
