Bold Prints, Classic Shapes

I began teaching myself to sew at a young age and have fond memories of playing underneath my grandmother’s quilting frames. However, it wasn’t until I had spent four years at university, two years abroad, and three years in "the big city" that I decided to move back to my hometown, reignite my relationship with my sewing machine, and finally turn my life-long hobby into a creative business.

All of the accessories I create are designed, sewn, and printed by hand in my home studio in Hamilton, Ontario. I like to work with bold prints and classic shapes to create designs that value quality and practicality above all else. I spend countless hours scouring warehouses, backrooms and catalogues to find that perfect shade or texture of fabric, and a single apron strap may see four or five different drafts. There's no sense in making a pretty apron if you can't bake in it, right? I'm constantly inspired by the past and the handmade tradition, which explains all the floral, houndstooth and plaid; but also, more importantly, I make my pieces to last, ready to be passed down for generations.

Outside of the sewing room, I'm an editor, tea fanatic, bookworm and baker.
