Welcome! I am Heidi the Cycling Seamstress

Hey there! I am Heidi the Cycling Seamstress!  I am a Bipolar, Neurodivergent, Unschooling mom, and my trade is sewing.  I work out of my home, and do custom clothing creation, alterations, and I also make ready to buy environmentally friendly items, dog clothes, and ready made clothing that can be created from scratch or parts upcycled from thrifted clothing.

So why the cycling seamstress? Well I am a 3/4 time cyclist that rides a cargo bike as a secondary form of transportation.  I have well over 4,000 local miles on my bike, and there is no stopping me! On the note of cycling, I ride myself and my entire vendor booth to the Arlington Foodies Farmers Market in Pantego, which is local on 5 miles north of my home studio. I am currently fundraising for a Bikes at Work heavy duty bike trailer. These are the biggest and best trailers for hauling lots of gear. They are American made and cost quite a bit. I am fundraising for a goal of $1500 to be able to purchase one of these amazing trailers. Won't you consider donating? You would be helping out a Neurodivergent mom help support her family!

Hey! I have my first affiliate link!, that is right, you click the link and I get some cash to help support me.  I am an affiliate for Xero Shoes. They are an American company out of  Colorado that makes the some of the greatest barefooting shoes I know of.  I excusively wear Xero Shoes because they have nice, wide toe boxes for my feet, and they look like normal shoes.  On of my Neurodivergent super powers is stimming with my feet. I like to feel the ground beneath my feet, and Xero Shoes help me do that.  So if you are interested, click on the Xero Shoes picture and check em out!
