My interest in sewing started when I was a young girl growing up in England. I remember clearly watching my mother and my grandmother make clothes for themselves and for my sister Sharon and I. After I married Ian we were working at the British Embassy in Washington and started helping with the British Embassy Players shows, especially the Old Time Music Hall which has just last year celebrated it’s 50 year anniversary although now it has moved from the Embassy to Kensington, Maryland where the British Players continue the tradition. That is where I got my introduction to stage costuming which is still a favorite hobby today.
