who we are
I have wonderful memories of watching my mother at the sewing machine. Most particular when she was sewing for me! See, when I was young she had a job at a fabric store which meant we had a lot of fabric in our house. But it also meant that I had a fair share of custom clothing. My favorite part was going to the store my mom worked at, choosing the pattern, and then getting to pick my own fabric. It was like being a designer and I knew I had one of a kind clothing.
Fastforward to my college years and I was randomly thrown into a sewing situation for the theater department. Everything I had watched my mother do and what she had taught me started to take shape as I faked my way through designing costumes. This passion for creating, coupled with the story telling of theater turned into a Master of Fine Arts in Costume Design and a twenty year career in designing, creating and story telling.
Now I have my own daughter, and while I do not sew for her as much as my mother did, we sure love to create together. She has an imagination for days!
