My name is Erica Schott, and I've been sewing since the year 2000. I first started sewing in earnest after I visited a quilt show with my mom. I saw a design I fell in love with, and couldn't resist making one for myself.

A costumer at heart, I simply couldn't resist trying my hand at recreating some of those exquisite works of art in 3D. The first cosplay I sewed for myself was Chi from the anime Chobits. After winning a few awards, I was hooked.

After a time, my friends started to come to me with requests to make them costumes and accessories. Who was I to refuse them what they wanted?

Won't you let me create something for you?
