About Me

Hi, I’m Joanne.

I love making things! Sewing, gardening, baking, I love it all.

I formally started my creative journey online when my children were very young, selling custom Handmade children’s clothing. I now sell fabric and sewing supplies at Sage Sewing Supplies and digital downloadable sewing patterns at Sage Sewing Patterns. I hope you’ll find something to suit your fancy there. 

This blog emerged as my love for reimagining thrift store finds spread beyond the sewing world into into the hardscape. It’s been a fabulous adventure learning to craft items for the home and yard. I can’t wait to share the latest creations with you.
