My name is Joyce and these are my personal pages where I post tidbits about sewing and clothing design.


When you get done checking things out, be sure to stop by the newest addition to my site: SewingPage Merchantile.


A little about me-


I have been sewing for over 43 years. My mother taught me to sew when I was 12 years old. I made my first garment shortly thereafter and have been sewing ever since!


Costuming was my forte-


Once I knew how to sew, costuming soon became  my passion. The first costume I recall constructing was akin to Barbara Eden's outfit from "I Dream of Jeannie".  In my 20's I discovered belly dancing and my cabaret outfits were adorned with coins and beads.  In my 30's I discovered the Society for Creative Anachronism which deals with medieval costuming.  In my 40's I discovered Islam and had a whole new field of clothing design to explore!

Making my own fabric -


In 2009 I discovered the joys of weaving. Making your own fabric is a very satisfying and rewarding experience. I created Rigid Heddle Weaving , Joy Of Weaving and I Sell Yarn. com as an extention of this hobby.
