What is Bel Aire Village?

I am starting this blog to talk about my sewing creations. I have been reading all the amazing blogs the sewers out there are writing and am very impressed with the quality. 

My background in sewing - I have been sewing all my life. I started sewing when I was very young. My grandmother taught me to sew. She was a meticulous seamstress. She did alterations for a living and insisted that every seam be perfect, no stitches could show, and she measured more times than I could count. When I think back to the old machine she did her work on, I am even more amazed at her skill and talent. I hope she would be proud of what I am doing.

I opened up my first Etsy shop this summer. It is called Bel Aire Village because this is the place where I sew.  I wanted to share some of the things I create in my sewing room. I love quilting and have made several over the years. I started making handbags a couple of years ago and after being encouraged by family and friends to sell them I have added those to my shop. Please visit my shop and leave me a comment.
