A propos

How did a New Zealander end up living in Japan sewing bags?

After having two kids and being a stay at home mum for about five years the question on everyone's minds was when was I going back to work.

Returning to the corporate scene was very unappealing so I secretly started a blog where I worked through several small business ideas and asked for feedback from my readers. There were only a few readers at first, of course, but they were a huge support and source of encouragement.

So I tried card-making. Cake decorating, party planning and catering were other ideas.

It was when I was sewing for my son's kindergarten craft fair that I hit upon the idea of sewing for kids. I already knew that Japan produces the most amazing fabrics. Once I started looking at the fabrics for children I became absolutely hooked on them myself.

I am a perfectionist when it comes to my work. I just love seeing how a new fabric looks as a bag and feel a great sense of pride when I see how many bags I have made and sold over the past ten years. I have also loved meeting in person so many of my customers and becoming friends on social media. That's the best thing about this business hands down - it can be lonely living in a foreign country!

So how did a New Zealander end up living in Japan sewing bags? Well I blame my husband for me staying in Japan - he was too great a catch to let go. As for sewing bags, sometimes you hit upon an idea that just seems right.

These days I balance my time between sewing, mainly as a hobby, and working with other creative entrepreneurs. Now that my kids are both at school I have returned to my main profession and work as a marketing consultant. I am still steering clear of corporate life. Suits and commuting are just not me anymore. Mee a Bee is still a wonderful creative outlet for me and I love it dearly.

Thanks for reading! I would love to hear from you or connect via any of the social media websites.

    My two sons have been a huge source of inspiration and motivation. They give the final approval for most of the boy's designs!
