I began by sewing custom canoe covers for myself and for friends. As a result of increased interest, I founded the Midnight Seamstress business in 2014. Since then I have made covers for kayaks and over 100 models of canoes and kayas, canoe decks, paddle bags, safety flags, and more. I enjoy the sport of marathon canoe racing and can often be found attending paddling events throughout New York State and beyond.

I have been sewing since 4H club introduced me to the sewing machine in elementary school. I enjoy sewing, but I'm happiest to be outdoors paddling, biking or skiing.
