I am not sure how you found yourself at my blog, but I am happy that you did. This is the part of my website that I was really looking forward to.
My name is Mary Zimmer. I am the proud owner of Sweet Pea Athletics. Let me tell you a little bit about myself so you can get to know me. Sewing, embroidery, decoration of clothing is seriously my passion!

I started sewing when I was about 4. I am not kidding either. My mom remembers me making barbie doll pants, (well, actually they were for a Dawn Doll, does anyone remember those?) They were yellow felt and I sewed them right to the doll's body. I was so dissapointed in myself for not making them functional! That passion led to a severe fabric store addiction. By the time I was ten years old, I would jump in any car leaving my driveway in hopes of making our way to the fabric store. There I could walk the aisles and run my hands over all of the textures and colors.
I am sticking a picture of me in 8th grade when I finally got sick of trying to make ideas up and asked my mom for a pattern and some fabric. I made two of these jumpsuits in one night. Right at the dining room table with Mom's old Kenmore. That was only the beginning!

Please check back often as I complete this story and tell you of more stories about being a mom, a seamstress, a business woman, and a Christian!

Thanks for peeking!

As we watched your hobby turn into a money making business, no two parents could have been more proud of you.
Love, Kenmore Mom,,,,,,,,

Ok, so when are you going to get volleyball stuff? I have lots of great ideas, we need to get going on it, maybe after you get back from California, and the kids get into their routines.
