About

Sewing is an Adventure with Endless Destinations

Escaping from Cuba in the 1960’s with nothing more than the clothes on their backs, my family found ways to make ends meet in the new country. As a young girl, I remember sitting beside my grandmother as she hunched over her old, avocado-colored factory sewing machine, watching her make magic with her hands. I vividly remember every detail of that heavy iron machine: it was built into a wide Formica desk, had an enormous foot pedal beneath, made only tiny straight stitches, and sounded like a diesel truck. Twice a week a man would deliver two dozen shirts and two dozen collars to Abuela's door, and the next day he picked up two dozen collared shirts. She never had a pattern or instructions and I often marveled at her speed and agility.

One day it occurred to my mom that she could make dresses for my sister and I and so the trips to the fabric store began. Collecting the materials seemed like an adventure with countless paths to take; each one had a unique destination. We chose from dozens of patterns and styles, and then gathered just the right fabric, buttons, and trims for a dress I could already see in my head. I remember her cutting the beautiful yardage into odd shapes; I watched as it whizzed beneath the machine needle guided by her skilled hands. Often I had to go home before it was done and when I saw it next it was ready to wear. I never understood how a simple piece of calico could become a gown that fit and flowed and took my breath away.

Until nearly 10 years later, when a friend suggested I make my own costume for a Civil War era dance. "Oh, I don't really sew," I told her. We had moved away from my grandmother and her sewing machine, and though I had had a few beginner sewing lessons, it had never really made sense to me. "It's easy, I help you", she told me confidently. So we bought some calico and cut and pinned and pleated until we had something that resembled a skirt, large enough to rest over a huge Victorian hoop-skirt. It was too tight at the waist, and longer on one side, but I loved it. I could have danced all night! The next day reality set in as I examined my work more closely. “I can fix this", I thought. So I took it apart, and put it together again. And again. And again. Something inside me clicked. And just like that, the magic that had flowed from my grandmother’s fingers, I understood and possessed.

It didn’t happen overnight; no one becomes a master in a day. Those first few pieces, were well, terrible. But I fell in love with making things, and love covers a multitude of mistakes. Every new project gave me a new skill. I was determined to create the things I imagined; to try every new idea that came along. Every hour spent at my machine was like a dream, and every mountain of difficulty became a hill I could climb with courage.

It wasn’t long before I discovered machine embroidery, and all the endless possibilities it presents. Each time I sit at my desk to make something new, I know I am an artist because I fall in love with every creation, every fabric and button and thread. I think I especially love thread. It has a mind all it’s own, but we are definitely on speaking terms. It possesses strength and beauty, it is both practical, and decorative. Every shade tells a story; and the composition I create becomes a symphony of color.

Now I am married, have a beautiful home, and three adorable children who inspire me every day. I enjoy the juggling act of responsibility, and feel blessed to be able to share my creations though Etsy, and beyond.

This one motto I carry: Loving... because not to love would be hating.... Giving... because not to give would be taking... Creating... because not to create would be unthinkable.
