It all started some 50+ years ago when I first received the gift of a sewing machine from my parents.  Since that time, and many yards of fabric and a number of sewing machines later, I have experienced the joy of sewing for others as well as myself.  To me, sewing is all about being creative, and it fulfills my desire to please others with my creations.  Being able, for example, to turn a two dimensional piece of fabric, be it a remnant or a special fabric, into a three dimensional thing of beauty for my family, my friends, or myself is personally quite satisfying.

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of making very special things for very special events.  These would include wedding dresses and christening gowns reinvented from cherished wedding gowns. Prom gowns for  young ladies who wanted to create their own style.

And now I’m pleased to announce that I’ve launched a new business, Bags By Joyce.  Bags by Joyce offers a quality line of unique customized handbags. 

I hope you will take a moment to look at my handbag creations on the following pages.  Perhaps you’ll see one that appeals to you.
