About Me



This is me.  A rare shot where Nomadic Husband has the camera and he’s managed to get me in a picture, AND I’m smiling!

I first learned out how to sew from my grandma. She taught me how to hand sew, and in middle and high school I did 2 garments for myself. A poodle skirt and a medieval type dress. Both came out ok, but I never actually jumped on a sewing machine until I bought one while we were stationed in Japan. $80 from the Navy Exchange. I am self taught on the machine, and started sewing with my bestie from Florida who also had a machine that she really didn’t use but wanted to learn. We started with cloth diapers and expanded from there!

I’m a cyclist, hiker, sewist, bookworm, wife and mama in no particular order.  I’m a sometimes blogger, and a lover of all things chocolate.

We’re a US Navy family, and travel the world. We’ve been stationed overseas twice and hope to do it again as much as we can. I love traveling and exploring new cultures. There is so much to see and so many people to meet! This is where Nomadic Sewist came from, we usually only end up spending 18 months-3 years in one particular spot. It isn’t easy, but it’s a good life.
