Taught to sew by her mother as soon as she could hold a needle, Lynda has been sewing ever since. While she has always been passionate about
old clothes and old houses, it wasn't until she started working as a historical interpreter at a living history museum that Lynda began to sew
historical costumes. At first, she sewed her own costumes to wear at the museum and was soon sewing costumes for friends and coworkers.
She gradually built up a clientele that included museums and historical re-enactors.
Although no longer sewing professionally, Lynda still creates costumes primarily for herself and continues to research the fashions from the
Victorian and Edwardian eras, particularly the 1860's, 1870's and 1910's.
She is an active member of her local historical society as well as several online costuming forums.
