"My obsession with fabric began at an early age: salvaging scraps from my mother's sewing-area trash bin. By the time I was twelve years old, I was unstoppable on her 1967 Sears Kenmore sewing machine, creating costumes, clothing and crafty things. It wasn't until I landed a part-time job at a major fabric store and met Madeleine (Drake) Vail, that I realized there were others in the world who were as addicted to fondling fabric as I was.
