Meet Your Bag Making Guides!

Hey there!

I’m Christy Headings!  I’m married to my biggest supporter, Travis, and we have four pretty awesome kids. Our life is hectic and crazy but we love it!


My mom taught me to sew when I was a kid, and I was hooked! It’s something that the two of us still share. When our youngest was just a little over a year old, I decided to start sewing again. I gave him an old sewing machine (don’t worry, I took out the needle), fabric scraps and my clips to play with on the floor while I was sewing!  He would be entertained for hours “making” things for me, which gave me lots of time to learn bag making!


After a couple years of making bags, I decided I also wanted to make myself clothes, so I did!  I have studied and learned all I can about making clothes and bags, and am constantly learning new tricks and techniques.


My husband loves to tease me because when I get stressed out from sewing, I sew something different to relax!  Sewing truly is my escape and my way to reset! I love to share knowledge I’ve gathered along the way…hopefully to save someone else from a mistake I’ve made!

Happy Sewing, 


Hey there!

I’m Sonia, mom of three awesome boys, and I've got a small army of four golden retrievers. Happily married to my bestie, life is a bit of a whirlwind, but I wouldn't have it any other way.


So, how did I start sewing? Well, it all started with me on the hunt for the perfect raglan top. Turns out, I'm picky, and the stores weren't cutting it. So, armed with a sewing machine and a vision, I dove in. Fast forward, and I'm not just sewing, I'm designing patterns. Yup, all because I couldn't find a pattern for that dream dress of mine.


But it's not just about the stitches; it's about the fantastic people I've met in the sewing world. We're like a sewing squad, stitching and chatting our way through life. 


Whether you're a sewing pro or just figuring out which end of the needle is up, come hang out. Check out our courses, embrace the joy of making something totally yours. and let's be part of this awesome sewing community!



It's more than just stitching; it's a shared experience, a celebration of creativity, and an opportunity to bond with fellow sewists. Don't miss the chance to sew and connect. Secure your spot and don't miss the Sewcial Stitch Along, it's where the joy of sewing becomes a shared adventure!
