I sew pretty much everyday so you can imagine how fast things pile up. So a few years ago I decided to open my online shop to sell some of the things I make. I have been selling on Etsy since July 30, 2014. I make small kitchen niche like bowl cozies, clip-on loops for tea towels, reusable shopping bags and aprons. I enjoy making fabric lanyards, fob wristlets and a few baby items as well.
In addition to Etsy, I am a vendor at local craft fairs in my area, Kimberley, (Marysville) BC. Of course fairs are not possible at this time. Once they are allowed again, I will take part once again.
How I got into quilting:
Several years ago now, I was mesmerized by the quilting my best friend had done. It was a bucket list thing, something I had always wanted to learn. My grandmother was a quilter and I had a couple of her quilts that needed dire repair. My friend taught me the basics, and I was off and running! That was over 7 years ago now. Since we moved to the east Kootenay region of BC, I’ve been enjoying getting out to local craft fairs.
My Portfolio: Please feel free to browse over some of the things I have made on my portfolio page.
My Museum: I love vintage Singer sewing machines. Although I have downsized due to moving house a couple of times in the past couple years, upon the latest count, I have a grand total of 17 sewing machines. Two of them are my modern machines; my daily driver, my Singer Confidence Quilter 7469 and my Janome 550e embroidery machine. The other 15 are all vintage! You can check them out on my museum page.
