About

The voice behind A Coffee with Makers is Kimberly Payne.  Kimberly is the owner, designer, teacher and all around one woman show at Straight Stitch Designs.  She learned how to sew from her mom in high school and the desire to create hasn’t stopped since. 

Five years ago with two young kids at home, the need to have something outside raising children was just the push she needed to teach herself to design and draft sewing patterns.  Kimberly now has a growing sewing pattern business with both PDF and paper patterns carried all over the world.  She looks forward to sharing her knowledge of the indie sewing pattern world with you.
