Lina Alvarez's Profile
I don’t exactly remember when I fell in love with crafting, it might’ve been early childhood watching Abuelita Delfina make those beautiful heirloom items, or maybe when Mom taught us (my oldest sister and me) how to make delicate Kleenex tissue dolls in embellished night gowns and long gloves, or the year I turned nine and Grandma Angelita gave me my first sewing machine as a Christmas gift. A manual Singer specially designed for girls!! I use to make doll’s dresses with store bought patterns and doll accessories designed by myself with Mom’s guidance.
Anyhow, I’ve always been exposed to crafts and minor arts ever since I can remember. I guess that’s why I’m so passionate about crafting no matter the material or technique and really hope you like my pieces as much as I enjoyed making them.
