Hello to everyone!
I was a member on the previous forum under the username "creativestitches" but when I registered for the new forum I decided to use my name "kathleenmarie". I learned to sew when I was 8 years old and never stopped. I have a B.A. degree in Art Education and a M.S. in Design, Housing, and Merchandising in Fashion Design. I taught at the college level until about a year ago and have been doing lots of sewing in the past year trying to get my portfolio and website together.
I love to sew a lot of different things, but my goal for the year is to add some historical clothing designs to my site. I have taught historic costume design for years but just haven't had the time to make some of my own. I recently made my first regency dress and am in the process of getting some photos. I would love to go back to school to earn my PhD in historic clothing design but have to get my 2 teenager girls through college first!
I am looking forward to being more involved in the forum this year. I am also trying to get a blog started so if anyone has a blog that I can follow to help me along with my historic sewing skills I would love you to let me know so that I can follow. Looking forward to lots of sewing!
