Melanie HamHi there!  My name is Melanie and I’m so glad you have stopped by!  I took a beginning sewing class at Joann Fabrics back in 2007 and bought a sewing machine when I had a little extra time on my hands while I was finishing college and my husband had just joined the U.S. Army.  I started sewing crafty stuff, just simple things and then in 2010 I made my first quilt and have been obsessed ever since.  I started the YouTube Channel in December of 2011 and I am so thankful that it has become my job!  I am a happy wife to Robert and we have 2 beautiful kids who are 7 and 5.
