How I Was Inspired

My name is Christine Benavides and the art of crafting, sewing and creating has always been among my favorite things to do. It is this passion that has brought me here today. It all started when I was a little child and (my mother taught me how to sew). She started me off small, with fixing a hem, repairing a button and adjusting a seam but it wasn't long until I was sewing on my own. Each time I fixed something or made a gift for a friend I was filled with a sense of accomplishment and self empowerment.

When I was in my teens I started creating and sewing my own clothes. I'll never forget my father, Bruce Collman, a navy man, who taught me the importance of hard work. The first thing that he did when I showed him a finished item was turn it inside out and inspect the workmanship. He was looking for perfection. Many times I needed to go back and redo a section but in the process I learned that self-satisfaction of a job well done is the reward for neatness and perfection. Thank you Dad for teaching me this lesson.

Later on I got married and had two beautiful baby boys. I immediately started designing and creating custom clothes for them and what fun that was until one of them came to me and asked if he could have "store bought" clothes! After all he was in the 5th grade. At which point I switched gears and started designing children's toys and decorations for the home. Even though my boys are all grown up I'm still making fun things for little ones. I like to think of it as "Grandma-in-training"!
