In 2006 my husband and I moved to the US.

I began my foray into sewing when I hand sewn beaded jewelry pouches, decorated with many hand sewn bead work in unique designs for my mother-in-law and her friends as thank you for hosting a stateside bridal shower. My mother-in-law recognized my affinity for sewing, giving me a wedding gift of my first sewing machine.

Although I was ecstatic to now have a sewing machine I was a bit intimidated by it. I began with simple designs but was really curious and eager to learn how to sew more complicated designs. I learned from sewing books and tutorial videos and of course learned from my mistakes. I kept learning to sew different design and developing the quality.


My mission is to create high quality, handmade products. I choose high quality materials so that my heart can be channeled through my creations.
