On Etsy since 2020

about me....

Now that I'm in my second year of Etsy, it's probably time to say something about myself.

I come from a family of craftsmen and at the age of 5 I would rather dress my dolls with self-crocheted things than play with them.
My grandma was a seamstress, my mother (is) a super good seamstress, embroiderer, knitter... the two of them taught me everything they could pass on.
I love fabrics, borders, wool - at the age of 8 there was the very first sewing machine!!!
For me one of the best places ;) In my "workshop" on one of my machines.

Since then, all this has taken its course.
Sewing courses, workshops, patchwork, knitting design... I wanted to be able to do and know everything and sew almost daily several hours.
My standards are high, both for the fabric qualities I sell and for all the products I manufacture.
I had a successful own label for 10 years, with products protected throughout Europe, which I produced at the peak time with up to 5 seamstresses.
These were distributed by us In Germany, and partly also throughout Europe via trade fairs; also own online shop, marketing and press relations.
The time expenditure was immense, I had max 2 weeks vacation / year, long working days, fairs on weekends - too little remaining time with 3 sons, husband and dog.

That's why I'm taking a break and thinking about how I can continue it on a smaller scale.

In between, partly parallel still fabric market Holland, I realized after 5 years, however, that the trade in fabrics alone is not the "yellow of the egg" for me.

Since I have a lot of experience with work optimization and workflows, I always make small series when I have ideas. Anything else makes no sense to me.
From now on I will offer finished products on Etsy, partly also sample parts.
There will also be a separate shop again, but that still takes time - I'll let you know when.

As mentioned I have 3 (meanwhile) adult sons, 2 more I have married with my current husband ( so 5 , from 18 -27 years), 2 of my sons live with us.

My middle son Lennart is my holiday replacement in terms of scissor nurse shipping.
My husband is my most important support, he lets me "romp and rage" in the studio - and does not slow me down in my "creative thrusts". <3
I am not a hobby seamstress, but a sole proprietor with his own large space and will not participate in "incomprehensible pricing".
I always try to call up fair prices, which are also subject to clear calculation rules.

I think we will have fun together for a while.
Until then, everyone stays healthy and creative for me.

Your Alexandra
Pictures of the studio will soon be available.

    I don't want to do things anymore that have no meaning for me, I love my work, and I like to deal with important, beautiful, nice, interesting things and just such people.
    Life is too short for everything else.

    Sons of the scissor sister with the (bitter) lot to find their way in an almost infinite camp of great fabrics. 😊 ... but only when I'm on vacation.
