Twisted Stitches

I have been making clothes based on the whimsy of my own imagination since I first was allowed a turn on my mums sewing machine.
Its always been about “making things”, the pure joy of it!
Imagining it, creating it, then having it exist as its own “thing”.

I love clothes for many reasons.
For one thing, who doesn’t want to look awesome.
I’ve always figured that, when you look awesome, you feel awesome.
And feeling awesome is key to life - one that you enjoy and experience, Whole-Heartedly.

As humans, we have a lot of subtle head signals going on. The clothes we wear are our second skin – ones that we choose, based on mood, mating, weather and the elements, activities, surroundings, culture, and many other factors.
When you wear your chosen second skin, you are sending signals to others about who you are – or rather, who you want to be perceived as. Those signals are received, and a lot of our interactions are based on them.
When you wear a piece of clothing that you feel UTTERLY yourself in, one that is comfortable, durable, and practical for whatever activities you may be engaged in, then the signals you are sending are those that are truly you. Signals are received, responses given, and this essence of you, in the most comfortable form, is the norm.
That is my desire for all of these creations – they have their job to do. Each one is unique, just like you.

Even though I usually do not know who at the time, once they are created, each will find their perfect owner, like moths to a flame, bees to a flower, magnets to other opposite magnets.

It is my conviction that we are ALL main characters in our own story – (and characters in the bigger story, of everyone.). We do not know how this story ends, because we are in it, living it, experiencing it, and sometimes, observing it as it goes by. The trinity: Sometimes we are the star of the show, sometimes the technician, sometimes the audience. Everyone gets a turn at everything! And so the circle of life continues (or rather, spiral…)

These clothes will make you feel like a storybook character in your very own fairytale. The tale of your life! It is full of magic! Full of wonder! (yours), Life will open up and speak to you if you take a moment to connect with it. Any moment will do. This one, even….

My heartfelt love, and warmth, to all of you.

You’ll find me working in the hidden pixie workshop with my sewing machine and scissors, scraps flying and threads spreading as I weave magic and reality together in comfort. To the perfect match!
