Rachel's Profile

About

Sewing has always fascinated me. From a young age, I would watch my mother and grandmother unroll bolts of gorgeous fabrics, carefully lay-out and cut patterns, and stitch together pieces of cloth into fancy dresses, crisp flags, and elegant drapes, among other things. There were many nights when I fell asleep to the hum of the sewing machine in the other room.

Thought I initially never thought I would catch “sewing fever” from my mother and grandmother, I began stitching in 2006. Over the years, I have made the occasional quilt or purse for my friends and family, but I was never able to spend a lot of time sewing due to school. After graduating with an M.A. in English in 2010, I dusted off my machine and started stitching again. This time, however, I have been unable to peel myself away, and I have become totally engrossed in creating beautiful things…

In terms of my preferences and aesthetics, I enjoy creating several different types of items including aprons, quilts, and purses. Though I occasionally utilize patterns, my favorite designs are the ones I create myself, taking classic looks and giving them a new twist. It is important to me that my items are unique, chic, and exude a sense of character. I prefer bright and bold colors, but I also adore sophisticated black and white prints. Being a perfectionist at heart, I spend a great deal of time and effort ensuring that everything I make is well constructed and will last for many years. I sincerely hope you will enjoy your items as much as I enjoy making them.
