Hi friends! I am Missy, and I am so glad that you are here! I am a full-time maker and have been sewing for more than 30 years. I have been making fun, whimsical items that are a combination of both practical and adorable. I run my business, The little Green Bean, full-time with my husband Mike. We have 3 wonderful boys and live in northern Minnesota. The summers are wonderful and the winters are long, but this is where family is and we wouldn't have it any other way.

I learned to sew in my high school home economics class and have loved it ever since. Just don't ask me to hem anything- haha. I have always loved teaching others and have been teaching in some capacity or another in all of my former jobs. Helping others learn new skills is something I truly enjoy. I am bringing together my love for and sewing knowledge with teaching in a one of a kind, sewing membership where you will learn new skills, have access to exclusive patterns, video courses, and live sew-alongs. We will also have a wonderful private community of makers, sewers & all around crafty people where you can share your work, ask questions and make new friends. We know that you can do anything you want to with the right tools & education.

So please join us for some fun in a group where it is ok to make mistakes, we simply move on & learn from them. We don't believe in all of the traditional, old school " sewing rules" and things definitely do not have to be perfect. You are allowed to do things your own way and at your own pace. Come as you are, everyone is welcome.

Thank you for being here and supporting or small business, we love what we do!
