I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

Vanessa is beautiful and they should use the sign you wrote for her! You are doing some very special "acts of kindness" by walking the rescue paws!!!!

There she is! I do hope that someone adopts her soon. Thank you again for devoting your time to these sweet creatures. I know that my little guy has become the light of my life. It is almost as if he knows he got a second chance...SAFE literally snatched him from the jaws of death. They took him one day before he was due to be put down. He is a happy, healthy little boy who just loves being alive. He is obedient and loving and even gets along with the cat! God bless you!

I love that she's called Vanessa! She's a fine looking dog, hope she finds a forever home soon. Bet she's happy to see you each morning.

My heart broke when I lost my little rescue boy. He had that same worried look that Vanessa has. Took him a bit to get over it, but what a great little friend. I hope they all find forever homes.

Vanessa has been adopted! I saw pictures of her in her new home and she looks very content!
