My ' Designer Name', AliKat Granny, is a composite of the names of my two youngest granddaughters Alissa and Kathleen. I did craft shows for many years and designed and made the patterns for most of the things I sold, concentrating on practical and useful items. I enjoyed doing the shows and meeting my customers, many times getting new ideas for things they needed but could not find in stores.
Although I still love to sew, my age prevents me from doing craft shows, so I now keep busy sewing for family and friends. I have taught sewing as a non-professional to both children and adults, on a one-to-one hands-on basis. Putting my directions 'in print' is quite new to me. You may contact me at AliKat Granny, 202B South Randall Rd. #5583, Elgin, IL 60123-5511. I welcome your comments and ideas.
