Your story in one sentence.

Hi, my name is Kristina and I live in Bulgaria. I was raised in communist society where buying nice fashionable goods was impossible. I remember my mother leaning over the sewing machine trying to make nice skirts, dresses and coats for us. At that time everything was homemade and we dreamed for nice birthday cake from the store. Handmade goods had no value at all. When I was grown-up and the communism was over long time nobody wanted to make something themselves as we could find everything at the store… My mother’s sewing machine stopped “singing”. I was occupied with stressful but challenging and interesting job, balancing between my work and family.
Couples of years ago I was searching for a unique present for a dear friend’s wedding and I came up with the idea of making her a wedding quilt. Myself! “It couldn’t be so difficult” I thought, though I never made a single stitch in my life. That day I sat in front of the sewing machine for the first time. You can imagine I had hard times with such an ambitious first project, but I did it. Now I wouldn’t be so proud with the final result, but back then I thought I could make everything. And what’s more important I loved the process.
That was the start. I used every minute for practicing. And the day I made my first bag and felt that's I want to do every day. I started making bags and sell them at a local store and little by little the thought that I could do this for living was not so ridiculous.
And here I am with my Etsy shop. I will be happy it you like what I do. I will do my best! Thank you for stopping by and reading my story!
