Lindsay's Profile

About

Well hello there. If you have stumbled onto this profile page you must be really curious about me, the shop or both. That or you are really bored and just wandering around the inter-tubes. In either case here it goes, a little bit about me, Lindsay:

The Short Concise Version:
I am a German speaking political science loving face painting hair stylist who loves dogs, but isn't allowed to have one. Oh, and I run an Etsy Shop too.

A Little longer version:
I have helped my mom sew from the time I was a little girl. One Christmas Santa Claus brought me a sewing machine, and I started sewing things. Then I ran out of people to make stuff for, so I Started the Etsy Shop.

The Long Version:
My first sewing project is rumored to be a 'purse' that I made at age 4. My mom gave me a basted purse and a needle…

The Long Version:
My first sewing project is rumored to be a 'purse' that I made at age 4. My mom gave me a basted purse and a needle and thread - I went to town. I haven't really stopped crafting since, just taken breaks of various intensity.
I went to College and had a great time, and was always a little bit jealous of a friend of mine that had a sewing machine. Shortly after moving back home after graduating college, I got a sewing machine for Christmas. I started sewing things and giving them away. Many people suggested that I set up at craft fairs. I just kind of nodded until my sister showed me Etsy - and thus the shop was born. Now I am working, and in hair school (a desk job just wasn't for me, I need to be working with my hands creating stuff) and when I have time, working on items for my etsy shop.

My Etsy Shop Name 'Story':
Threads of Genius is a fun double meaning type of thing, at least to me. On one hand, I work with Thread. The threaded creations are created by me, Genius (ha ha ha). On the other hand, the Genius that is created is sometimes easy to see and in your face, and sometimes it's a little harder to see - like thread.

More about Me:
I love being creative. I love to sew, and crochet, and occasionally knit too. I have been sewing long before I remember sewing - growing up at the feet of my Mother, Aunts and Grandmothers. My earliest know project was a "purse" at 4 years old. See my Blog for the full story on that one (mythreadsofgenius.blogspot.com).

I always say I want to make something for myself, but the truth is I love sewing for other people. The joy of knowing someone is enjoying your item is an amazing feeling; and can anything be better than your master seamstress of a grandmother showing up carrying a bag you made her - I mean really, when that happens I melt.
