I was raised by two creative people who taught me the importance of a handmade treasure. As a child, our gifts were homemade out of necessity, but now the majority of our gifts are homemade by choice. My mother gave me a love for fabric and taught me to sew at a young age. I began quilting as a teenager.
Five years ago my husband and I were hit by a city bus. My back was injured, and as a result, I needed a bag to wear across my body to balance out the weight. I had no luck finding what I envisioned in the stores, so I decided to make my own bag. People responded to it and the rest is history...
