A few years ago I had become acquainted with a charity that helps pregnant women and orphans in Haiti called Heartline Ministries. I had just quit my corporate job to stay home and get reacquainted with my child. I wanted to be able to support this charity that had so won my heart but didn't have any personal income to do it with. My husband is great but I didn't want to put the burden on him. So I decided to combine my hobby with a way to make a little extra money. We support a few charities now.

I started the shop here on Etsy with one collection of fabric. Which quickly grew to three, then six, and eventually we outgrew the house. I had a brick and mortar for 7 years now I am back to the house just selling my lovely Tilda.

    I have been a sewist and general lover of fabric since I was 6 yrs old. Making a career out of it is a dream come true for me. I not only have an Etsy shop but a shop website as well. I try to balance it all with time for my family.
