About Me Page
My father purchased a child's metal sewing machine that chain stitched for me when I was only 5. I haven't been without a sewing machine since that day. I can remember mending my own stuffed toys and doll clothes before I'd even started kindergarten. When books were sold at school, I always looked for books about making dolls and toys of cloth. By second grade, I had a real treadle sewing machine (my dad's birthday gift) and was making clothing for myself as well as my dolls.
I learned more about sewing in 4-H and Home Economics classes in high school. During that time, I started making cloth dolls and stuffed toys as gifts for relatives and by the time I graduated, had even begun selling them. After having children, my husband and I decided I should be a stay-at-home mom, but money was very short. A friend suggested I do a craft show, something I had never before heard of. With 3 months to plan, I decided to make cloth dolls to sell because they were so time consuming that most people would not try. The very first show was a success and over the next few years I progressed to consigning her dolls to shops.
I made mostly cute, cuddly dolls as toys for years but that changed when I discovered primitives.
In January of 2004 LUCY'S LAZY DAYZ PRIMITIVES was open for business. Unhappy with the patterns that were available, I started designing my own. I design primitive and folk art patterns but as you look at them, you will see I'm strongly influence by the 1950s and things my grandmother had in her home.
If you ever have difficulties with my patterns or the instructions, You will find my email address and phone number on my patterns and I am happy to help.
