JM: When did you get started sewing and creating?

REBECCA: In junior high school, sewing gymshorts and drawstring bags! My mom sewed, but I thought it was lame until I actually started doing it. I continued taking classes through high school. I was the kid the teacher told the other students to ask if they needed help, which wasn't great for my popularity.

JM: When did you start selling your designs on eBay?

REBECCA:I started on eBay in May of 2005. No, I don't sell anywhere else, I do have a website (www.ambrosiacouture.com) but I don't sell on it.

JM: Do you remember the first outfit you sold on eBay?

REBECCA: Yes, I do. I thought it was groundbreaking design, at the time. It was a plaid halter with eyelet trim in shades of brown and blue. I think it sold for $34.99.

JM: How did come up with your name?

REBECCA: I had a set that I named "Ambrosia Citrus" and the Ambrosia part of it stuck with me. Couture because for the most part, I create one of a kind pieces based on measurements.

JM: Do you belong to any boutique group?

REBECCA: Yes, I am a member of the Boutique-Jaynes. . I guested with them, and they welcomed me into their crazy fold! I love them! They are so zany, and fun, and warm.

JM: Do you have a favorite item to create?

REBECCA:I love making hats. I think they really complete a set - even though sometimes they can be really time consuming, they are worth it.

JM: If you could learn some new skills, what would they be?

REBECCA: I would like to learn how to smock - although I'm not sure if I have the patience for it.

JM: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

REBECCA: I would like to go to Ireland, I have family roots there, and pictures I've seen are amazing.

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides sewing?

REBECCA:There's life outside of sewing? I love playing with my kids, I enjoy cooking, I like going for bike rides, hiking, playing at the beach, and the occasional game of golf.

JM: Anything else you would like to add?

REBECCA: Thanks so much Amy for asking me for the interview!
