Family legend has it I started making things at age 4. My first creation: a pair of blue gingham shorts and a white cotton shirt for my new-born baby brother. The evidence still exists: cute, especially that duck embroidered on the chest - but, alas, not wearable.
My skills have grown since then. I love working with all kinds of fabric, jewelry elements, art supplies and photography. As a collector, I'm drawn (more like a mania) to vintage and unusual books, and classic, vintage and unusual clothing and jewelry.
My motivation: "making" and re-home-ing are good for the soul and kinder to the planet. I wish everyone could find the kind of making that makes them happiest.
