What will you have custom created for your little one this holiday season?
When I feel lost in life, my needle and thread are always there to help me find myself.
With every moment I gave to my boys, I felt as if I was losing a part of myself.
Although my boys brought new and indescribable joys, I began to miss myself. I felt as if I was no longer a person. I was just a shell, providing for everyone around me.
I realized that I had to do something for me. My husband and boys deserved to see me fulfilling my potential. I deserved to feel satisfied.
I remembered my mother. I remembered sitting by her feet as she altered clothing for the people in town. I remembered how she pumped the pedal and how the engine hummed. I remembered the smell of the starch and machine oil. The memory was warm and happy and perfect.
I decided to pull out my old machine. The moment my foot touched the pedal I was home.
I took a shirt out of my son's drawer, two scraps of fabric and onto the shirt, I sewed a bird.
A simple bird. It made me smile. I took a needle and thread and gave it a little eye. Then I stitched around the edges. It was perfect. I named it 'early bird'.
Suddenly the ideas began to pour in faster than I could create them. I pulled out a notepad and began to sketch.
That night, Small Threads was born.
