Grave Endeavours

I have always loved handmade items. I remember as a kid going to craft show to craft show with my Mum and sister. I loved the idea of creating something, working with your hands and being able to say 'I made that!'. Although I didn't buy my first sewing machine until I was already 30, I haven't stopped sewing since I bought it. Love at first stitch.
While I have taken a few sewing project classes and had a friend first show me how to use the machine, I'm mostly self taught. Trail and error...and mostly error in the start. I guess me and the machine had more of a love hate relationship, but soon it was all love when I created my first pair of leggings.
Soon after I opened Grave Endeavours here on Etsy I dove right into the handmade world and haven't looked back. It's great hearing feedback from happy customers and the lovely comments I now receive at craft shows I attend. I love being able to share my passion around the world and be able to say 'I made that!'

    I bought my first sewing machine in the summer of 2013 and haven't been able to stop sewing since. I love drawing up my own patterns and seeing them come alive into functional items. Born in Toronto Ont Canada, I recently made the move to Hamilton.
