Welcome!


“CushNCovers (now Grandma’s Closet) began when I felt my mom’s chair in our living room needed a facelift. I checked out a library book and learned how to make my first slipcover to surprise her.

Now, 40 years later after sewing cushions and covers for happy customers, I am changing directions. I want to focus on creating things for children or useful props and creative visual aids and ideas to help teachers of our young people.

I want to sew my own creations, like the doll outfit I made on my childhood dolly shown on the left. I want to make puppets too!

Otherwise, you can find some pillows and totes in my store that I made. New and used items too.

I will teach some sewing classes in the Fall if there is enough students who want to learn. Sign up and register.

I will write a little, work in my flower gardens and just enjoy the rest of my life at a slower pace. Thank you for checking up on me.

Read some writings of mine off the cuff.
