I create one of a kind bags, purses and pouches.
I seek out interesting fabrics and use them in a creative way to fashion unique and practical items.
I also enjoy working on custom orders.
I’ve been sewing since a very young age. I sewed clothes for myself and later for my home and family ... even make my.husband’s clothes.
I thoroughly enjoy sewing purses and bags.
Where do you work on your creations?
I work from my home sewing room.
How do you occupy your mind while working?
I occasionally watch TV but mostly work in silence, except for the hum of my machine.
I like to apply all interfacing in one ironing session so that I can then move on to the creative assembly process.
I find it rewarding when women tell me that the purse or bag which they have purchased has brought them many compliments.
