I literally started sewing so that I could make pillows.
I bought a really great pillow a while back and was struck by how much it changed the room when I got it home.
I have always loved combing thru flea markets and would pick up vintage or unusual pieces of fabric and have collected these fabrics for longer than I could sew (my friend, Tyn, told me that I was becoming a hoarder and that I was not allowed to buy any more fabric until I learned how to sew!).
I now have a large collection of these fabrics that I combine with new fabrics for distinctive, one-of-a-kind creations.
Dyeing has also become a passion for me and I love how each piece of fabric turns out differently.
The reason I love working with textiles is their combination of being "functional artwork" as well as adding comfort to your home.
