Heather has a fun, little project up next just in time for Valentine’s Day! First be sure to take a look at The Sewing Loft, Heather’s blog with great tips and communication about sewing, fun projects, quilting and more. Heather has patterns coming soon to Sew,Mama,Sew! and lots of exciting things in the works!…

Hello, Sew,Mama,Sew! readers! I’m Heather, the creative juice behind The Sewing Loft, a little place I like to call my “sewing circle.”

One could say that my creative journey started at a young age– that it was passed down from the generations before me. You see, growing up I watched my mother refashion old clothes into new outfits and snuggled with grandma while she darned thinning socks. From these memories my passion for stitching was born.

Fast forward, too many years to count later, and I have worked for some of the most amazing brands in the apparel industry to create garments you wear everyday! This real world experience exposed me to many areas within the industry and impressed the importance of a quality hand-made product.

When I’m not creating new patterns, I can be found transforming my scraps into fabric. I guess I’m just a “scrapper” at heart!

My goal is to help you “reclaim” your creativity, one stitch at a time.

In addition to designing patterns, I can be found sharing ideas, tips and projects on Cool2Craft TV, but what I am most excited to share is that Simplicity is bringing several of my designs to a store near you early this summer.

So, if you are looking to expand your sewing circle, clean out your scrap basket or learn new ways to use your tools, stop by and visit me at The Sewing Loft. I would love to meet you!
