About

Hi, my name is Helen. I've lived on Long Island my whole life, and sewing has always been a true passion of mine.

I have been sewing out of my home for decades, and thought it was about time to take my passion to the next level here on Etsy! I love sewing and creating, and I love handbags so it was a match made in heaven.

I learned to sew in the little "home ec" classes that were mandatory to take in school. When I went to High School I found I was able to take "Dressmaking" classes in BOCES. I was hooked. After gradutation I was even called to be a sub assistant teacher in the class. It was great. From there I taught sewing to kids in their home & would make clothes and curtains and other things for my home.

When I had children I would make their clothes "when they naped". I never get tired…

I began making bags when my daughter requested a certain name brand style diaper bag, and now it has branched into my own line!

All my bags are made in a pet free, smoke free environment, and with the utmost efforts. I only use high quality fabrics. My real love is remnants. I love the one of a kind bag!

I have received great feedback from selling them personally, and decided it was time to share with everyone else!

I hope you enjoy my products as much as I enjoy making them.
