“I truly believe my skills and talents are a gift from God. I have been designing and sewing since I was six years old and professionally since I was 15, and feel so blessed to be doing something that I LOVE sew much and that I have been given this talent to utilize to HIS glory. I hope I do it justice as I take this responsibility very seriously!”
