Alicia Gibson's Profile

About

HI! My name is Alicia and my small business is called The Blind Stitch!
I make stuffed animals that I call softies in my cozy apartment in Ontario, Canada where I live with my cat: Betty White.

I use new and recycled fabrics. Most of them are scraps from my creative friends and my many aunts. My love of animals and nature is the main inspiration for my work. I love all animals. There is an endless amount of creatures on this planet and I want to make at least one softie of each kind!

I had been sewing pretty regularly since 1998 and I began making softies when I finished getting my BFA at NSCAD University in 2008. I haven't stopped since then!

I finally started up The Blind Stitch with the help of many friends and family in 2011.
You can find me on…

You can find me on Facebook at facebook.com/TheBlindStitch and on Instagram @theblindstitch I know you'll love my fan page but don't forget to "like" it too. That way you can keep up to date on all things Blind Stitch!

I am open to custom orders. Please let me know if you have a great idea that you'd love to see in softie form. I'm all ears!

Take your time in my shop and look around. Each softie has a cute story that they can't wait to tell you.
