When I began this adventure, I was sewing baby wraps and ring slings exclusively. I was thrust into the world of babywearing by my first son, who was colicky and screamed the better part of his first five months. In addition to being immediately hooked on the benefits of babywearing, a serious fabric addiction was born. Since my son was always in a carrier, what I wore became pretty irrelevant. Having a beautiful wrap or sling made me feel put together and happy, two things that were sorely needed as a new mom with a miserably sad baby. Sewing quickly became my passion as well as my ticket to sanity.

As my children and skills have grown, I've expanded to sew a brad collection of children's products and activewear. Some of the reasons I began sewing my own kids' clothes are that truly warm, cute girl's clothes are almost non-existent, and boys clothes tend to be...well...boring. I live in New England and…

Sewing quickly became my passion as well as my ticket to sanity.

As my children and skills have grown, I've expanded to sew a brad collection of children's products and activewear. Some of the reasons I began sewing my own kids' clothes are that truly warm, cute girl's clothes are almost non-existent, and boys clothes tend to be...well...boring. I live in New England and like to be outside year-round; I had great technical gear but finding good gear for the kids was another story. The more I began to sew for my own children, the more I realized what a gap there is in children's products. Then I got jealous because their clothes were nice and better fitting than my own, and I made the leap to adult clothing as well.

I love beautiful fabrics and creating functional art, so I suppose it was inevitable that I would eventually begin making my own line of wraps and other baby wear. Now a mom of three, I make all my children's clothing in addition to most of my own, including very technical activewear. My years working in the running industry, as well as the years spent running, biking, doing yoga, and more, have given me a solid understanding of what components are needed to make outstanding technical gear. A Web designer for more than ten years, I use sewing as a way to design in a new light, transitioning from the virtual to the tactile.
