When Peggy was a young girl, her mother taught Peggy
and each of her five sisters how to sew. During her growing up years Peggy learned to make her own clothes and other creative sewing projects under the guidance of her mom. Peggy
is sure that as her mother took great pleasure in seeing her daughters'
creations back then, she still smiles down on them even today.
After high school, Peggy earned a Bachelor's Degree
in Home Ecomomics Education, which included coursework in textiles
and patternmaking. She also earned a degree in Food and Nutrition.
And in the years since college, Peggy has made good use of her home economics
knowledge in caring for her own family.
Peggy cultivated the art of vestment making by experience
- taking apart, mending and re-stitching an array of traditional Catholic
Today, Peggy is a masterful craftswoman who understands
both the skills and the art of sewing.
