There is just so much to love about this. It's shaped like a normal curve, the tails are shaded in, and you can even make a "bell curve" pun (There is a bell attached!). You have no idea how much joy this item brings me.

Although I‘ve been sewing small projects with my mum's help since I can remember, I’ve never considered myself a creative person. But it turned out that I am!

Every time I need a very special item to give as a present to my friends I make it instead of buying it (you can see some of them in my blog soon). In the process of making the last one I realized that I enjoy it so much, but I don’t have either the time or the excuse for doing it more often. So, I looked for an excuse: sell them! This also gives me the opportunity of experimenting and making projects that I wouldn’t make for my friends or myself.

I moved to Edinburgh a while ago for work, so here is where my ‘business’ is based, in a tiny corner of my living room.

My work is inspired by science in general, although there is a huge bias due to my evolutionary background. I hope you help me to change that by requesting customized items. Also, I love Christmas! But only as a family-and-friends getting-together holiday. The typical Christmas ornaments don’t suit me, so I decided to make my own ones.

For my projects I prefer cotton fabrics and natural fibres. I use cotton threads for hand embroidery. Recently I learned how to handprint fabric. I hope you can see my new projects soon!


Why 'Science is coming to town'? Well 'Santa Claus is coming to town' is my favourite Christmas carol, and since my goal is to bring a bit of Science to your Christmas holiday, it seemed to be a very appropriate name for my shop.
