Video summary: Moments of creativity.

Everything happens for a reason!

Being a teacher of English for over 30 years I had completely forgotten about hand-making. Until one day, while I was tidying a drawer, I came across an old piece of crocheting which I had made at the age of twelve under the guidance of my Cretan grandmother. The moment I saw it, I knew that it meant something. I started recalling events and soon enough, I found myself surrounded by pictures and moments of the past and dreams and ideas for the future. Lots of things crossed my mind. Memories of my childhood, songs, tales, and myths mixed with handmade patterns sprang from my Cretan culture and tradition.

To make a long story short, that was the first step to a journey through handmade. I started making gifts for my friends and eventually, I developed my technique and decided to go one step beyond; to get professionally involved. That proved to be the wisest decision ever as the Greek economic crisis knocked my door and it knocked hard - or I‘d better say it hit. “Everything happens for a reason” and at that moment I realized what the reason was!

Now I can say that I am fully occupied with hand-making. My day starts with a hot cup of coffee, some relaxing music on and my dog, Simba, which keeps playing with a ball. So here I am in the middle of yarn, with endless patterns on my mind and a passion to create things that will be loved by people around the world. Always taking new trends into account and combining them with traditional techniques, I make pieces that are practical and beautiful, impeccable and robust. In this way, I feel that I contribute to modern people's everyday life and make it a little better.

This is my journey through handmade. It’s full of inspiration, passion and dreams. I am enjoying the ride working hard and expecting the best!
