I live in an incredibly beautiful corner of the world, in the capital of British Columbia, on an island, almost as far west as you can go in Canada. I have followed a meandering path through a degree in biological sciences, certification as a competitive gymnastics instructor, and a diploma in public relations. Currently I work in communications during the day and spend as many afternoons, evening and weekends as I can sewing.
I began sewing at around 12 and knitting a little after. I left both of these pursuits in my early twenties and picked them up again almost 10 years later when I began doing my own nail art and gained a new appreciation for my dormant craftiness. I love doing things myself and seeing my efforts turn into something that I can wear, or see in my home every day, brings me so much joy! I learn primarily through trial and error, Instagram and YouTube videos. The more I make, the better I am getting at coming up with my own ideas and designs. I’ve already reached my goal of making an entire wardrobe for myself but there is still so much I want to make. This blog is dedicated to sharing what I’ve learned and the techniques and tricks that I have picked up along the way – hopefully inspiring you to take on your own DIY projects.
My sewing machines:
