Welcome to my website that is always a work in progress!

My Blog

I am writing just for the fun of it so my blog really has little to do with my sewing. Don’t waste too much time there unless you are curious. Now that I am retired, writing has been a pastime I have been enjoying in between sewing jobs or gardening.

I would love to sew something beautiful for you!


I like to leave you a update of what is going on in the life of CushNCovers when I am not sewing for you.

I don’t post something every day but try to change things up for you weekly.


Week of 9/20/2020
The hummingbirds are still here in Minnesota which really surprises me. I thought they left the first part of September last year. I should start a log….a nature log. I watch the hummingbirds, take note when the Pileated Woodpecker visits our backyard, and enjoy it when the deer stop by to chew on my hostas or some corn we may leave them in a feeder. When my flowers are blooming and even the hosta flowers, I put down deterent to keep them away otherwise.

Sewing jobs seem to fall into my lap these days without my even trying. I get repeat customers but do send bigger jobs away. I refer these to a friend of mine in North Carolina who does beautiful work. Today I will try and finish up some panels for my Interior Designer daughter who gives me jobs too. I enjoy making pillows most of all.

Today is quite windy here so a bonfire tonight or even later this afternoon will be out of the question. We got some split wood from our son who has a new home on a wooded lot and had to clear some of it out for a driveway and to make a low spot for run off when it rains.

Sewing classes begin October 3rd so I will get a letter out to my students and to welcome them.
I am looking forward to meeting some new people and especially to pass on some of the talent I have. If a person can sew, there will always be food on the table. You don’t need a college degree to make a living with sewing if you want to work hard at it.


All my sewing is made in USA, exclusively sewn by me! No outsourcing.

Read my reviews.

I have over 35 years experience sewing all kinds of things for customers. If your project is not massive, I would love to help.

Sewing class registration for this Fall is closed. I will have more classes in the Spring. Visit my registration page for more information.

Ask me for help with a DIY project of your own.

Do you need a referral?
Would you like the services of an Interior Designer?
Contact me with any questions.

Do you need encouragement during these times?
Be kind. You get what you give. Honor God and love your neighbor as yourself…..yes, love yourself too. Don’t let others put you down.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. ” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
