Bringing My Artist’s Palette To Your Baby’s Nursery
For me it’s all about color . . . the intense, pure color of designer fabric . . . the feel of it in my hands . . . and stitching a well-constructed work of art that adds comfort and interest to a baby's world.
Years ago I worked my way through college as a production sewer in a traditional factory – one shoulder seam after another – all day long – thousands of shoulders – day after day – week after week – on a super fast Merrow machine. . . . and I loved it. I honed every micro-movement of my body until I worked at peak efficiency. I was a smooth running machine – in the flow – a meditation. I found it peaceful and mentally freeing. To this day I carry the knowledge of stitching quality work with speed and efficiency.
After design school I started making quilts for fun. I was a purist - using traditional quilt patterns and no sewing machine - just a needle and a spool of thread. But only one quilt a year was a bit slow, so I revved-up my sewing machine and, with my art and design background, I started designing and creating one-of-a-kind wall quilts, and commissioned wall hangings.
Years later, after raising four fantastic kids, I mixed my love of fabric with my oil-painting-artist-self and, using fabric as my paint, began stitching works of art which I framed and, gosh-forbid, placed behind glass. I opened a small gallery/studio on the main drag through town where one day I decided to make a baby quilt just because I like making stuff for babies. I put it in the window . . . and one thing led to another. I soon found that baby quilts pay the bills so much faster than art. Shortly thereafter I discovered Etsy . . . and here I am . . . loving every minute.
I've recently moved to a large, two room studio within the jutting roofline of a downtown professional building. It’s a space of efficiency, peace, and beauty . . . set up for a smooth work flow, where I am surrounded by good music and designer colors – pure heaven. I send the good vibes out with each of my items - to you and all of your babies.
What’s next for me? Hmm. . . . I’ve been studying fabric design . . . just itching to design my own fabric . . . choose my own colors . . . and stitch it all together for you.
Thanks for all of your compliments, photos, and touching stories - and for being such great customers. I’m honored to play a tiny part in the life of your family.
