"Growing up with such a wonderful family, I was encouraged to really follow my dreams. From as far back as I can remember, my parents supported me unconditionally, wanting me to find happiness in life. My Dad once told me what his mother told him. He said “To our knowledge, we only live once... so follow your dreams and love what you do. Even if you want to be a garbage collector.. then you be the happiest garbage collector there ever was!” He had a good point.

I’ve always had a love of designing and sewing. I really admired dressmakers so much and I could watch them sew for hours in fixed awe. I so badly wanted to develop that skill. However, I was afraid that I wouldn’t be any good at it.

On June 16th, 2011, my Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal cancer. He was given 6 weeks to live. He was by far the bravest man I have ever known, and held on for the next 12 weeks. He documented the whole process.

It was during this time that I picked up my Janome, and started to sew... and I haven’t stopped since. I dove in, completely out of my league and immersed myself with sewing projects, fabrics, patterns & designs. It became my peace, and something I really love. It turns out you can develop any skill when sufficiently motivated to do so.

After a few months, I started getting quite a bit of interest in the clothes that I had made. So I had the idea to set up a little online shop to spread the word further, and sell lovely little handmade pieces.  I never thought that I could end up doing something that I loved so much!

In a nutshell, that’s where I am now, and how I came to be here. Sewing... Dressmaking... Designing... Creating... I’ve found my happiness! That’s what I want to do for the rest of my life. I am the happiest garbage collector there ever was. And I don’t just do it for me. I do it for my Dad."
