You need to begin with Starting to Sew and learn how to use your sewing machine.


I’m looking for inspiration and education.

Hello, I’m Nicki!

Welcome to The Ruffled Purse!


As the sewist and content creator behind The Ruffled Purse blog and website, my mission is to support, empower, and inspire busy people to discover (or rediscover) the joy of sewing AND make time to do it.

For much of my adult life, I thought more about sewing than actually doing it. It wasn’t until I actually made the time to sew that I realized how important it is to do something you love on a regular basis instead of waiting for the elusive “one day.”

You can learn more about my story HERE.
