Hi! My name is Taryn, I am 32 years old and I live in Houston, TX. I am originally from Beaumont, TX, where I was a graphic designer for several years.
Determined to have a reason to buy fabric, I bought my first sewing machine in 2005 (Simplicity Quilter's Classic SW240). Unfortunately it sat in a closet for nearly seven years, until my sister & YouTube taught me to thread it at the end of 2011! I haven't stopped sewing since then and I have fallen in love with sewing quilts. I currently sew with the Juki TL-2010 + Gracie Queen frame.
It is so nice to do something non-computer related after being in front of one for so many years, though I do miss my undo button sometimes. Seam rippers are a lot more work! I have learned so much the past few years and I look forward to improving my skills even more in the future. This blog serves as my personal portfolio.
