Sewing, Children's Toys

Brushstrokes and Stitches

Elaine enjoys all types of sewing. Her love for sewing began at age 12, learning how to follow patterns and make her own clothes. Her grandmother taught her the lost art of hand quilting when she was just 13. As Elaine got older with a family of her own, she began to make baby quilts and clothes for her daughter, then later for her grandson. Elaine has also made Halloween costumes for them and for others. One of her specialties is baby quilts which she says are made with love. Elaine also makes holders for crayons, colored pencils, and markers. These fun and brightly colored roll-ups are especially handy for travel. Looking for clothes for 18” dolls? Elaine makes these as well; from PJ’s, blankets and pillows to jeans and beautiful dresses, you will find them at the show. Her love for sewing doesn’t stop at children’s items, Elaine also makes aprons and potholders. She is always eager to take on special orders.
