STORY


I have always loved sewing and teaching. 5 years ago, I opened a workshop in Vienna, Virginia to teach children all I taught myself about sewing. I love seeing how kids learn so fast and quickly begin making amazing things.

The Heartfelt Workshop is my happy place!

But I was restless, because teaching to sew is not the same as sewing. I remember sewing things for my kids when they were little. Now they are 21, 18, and 15 and just a couple years ago, my oldest went off to college.

 I think that's when The Cherry on Top was born,  out of nostalgia and looking to fill my days doing things I love. 

Though I have sewn for a long time, I never felt skilled enough to sew Liberty London fabric (which is like gold!).

2 years ago, I had the courage to sew my first 2 dresses with Liberty fabric. That made me feel ready!

So here I am, making baby things with the most beautiful fabric in the world and with a unique tool, love. Sewing things for others and the thought of someone else wearing or using what I have made, fills my heart with joy. 

Hope you love my shop!
