Bernie from Needle & Foot has been sewing for over 40 years and currently lives in Northern California. She started her site two years ago when she retired, and just celebrated the two year anniversary on June 4th!

Bernie writes, “Growing up, my father owned a fabric store. My sisters and I (I am one of six girls) worked in his shop on weekends and during the summers. We learned to sew early on because we had fabric all around us.”

Bernie spends most of her sewing time quilting but she also enjoys making bags and clothing. She’s up next with a tutorial for the popular clothespin bags she sells in her Needle & Foot shop!

Hop over to Needle & Foot to take a look around, and to enter to win a bundle of summery fat quarters!
