About

From Brain Surgery to Business Owner

I’m celebrating my new life as a sewist!

Growing up I was fascinated watching my Mom and Grandma turn fabric into beautiful handcrafted items. It took until I was in my early 20′s until I finally got brave enough to try my hand at it (with a little help from my husband when he surprised me with a sewing machine).

As much as I loved it, for many years I couldn’t sit and sew without it triggering horrible headaches. It made me hesitant to begin projects for fear of the impending pain and knowing I probably wouldn’t finish what I started. When my oldest daughter was born in 2006 it broke my heart to not sew blankets, bedding and clothing for her.

In 2009 my life was turned upside down when I got laid off from my job at the University, where I worked as a Research Scientist. At the same time my headaches worsened considerably; thankfully, my wonderful doctor figured out what was causing the pain. I have an abnormality called a Chiari malformation; in simple terms the base of my skull was too small and was squeezing my brain down into my spinal column, hindering spinal fluid flow.

All it took was a little brain surgery to solve the problem — I can sew again (as well as be able to function as a person) and love it.

I jumped back into sewing as soon as my neck was strong enough. I rejoiced at being able to sit and sew without getting sick. It showed me how successful my surgery had been. Since I was still searching for a job I made the decision to try my hand at turning my sewing skills into a business venture. With the support of my husband, my family and my friends it's blossomed into more than I ever anticipated! Juggling kids, a household and a business often means I'm sewing late into the night but I love seeing my creations take shape!

This store lets me celebrate having a second chance to do the things I love! Any time I finish a project I’m reminded of how fortunate I am and how far I've come.
