A Girl a Dream and a Sewing Machine

Administrative Assistant by day, Seamstress by night and Artist all day long!

Thanks to my mother I have been drawing, painting, cross-stitching and creating since I could hold a crayon. But I did not find my true medium until high school when I took two semesters of sewing. Since learning to sew I have been commissioned to do a little bit of everything from alterations to home décor and custom crafts. I guess you could say my current work is the result of formal education, self-education and lots of trial and error.

However, everything changed the day my husband turned over the shirt he wore on our first date. (Seamstresses always hoard fabric.) I had the idea to turn this masculine menswear shirt into something more feminine that I could wear. Next thing you know I was making flower inspired creations out of all my scrap fabric. Having a background in retail and an undeniable desire to design, I started an Etsy shop to showcase my work.

So 1220 Bloom Street was born! Also, back in 2016 I started taking the show on the road! I have been vending at local craft fairs and street selling when I can. I like my day job and have no current plans to leave, but I also love to showcase my designs on Etsy and I love meeting new people at shows.

I am super excited to welcome you to my shop. I love to use bold colors and fanciful fabrics, partnered with classic clean lines, creating something that toes the line between classy and whimsical. I really hope to meet you at a craft show one day, and in the meantime enjoy what you see - shop what you love – and hopefully get inspired to be your most confident, colorful self!
