I've been sewing for more than half of my life now (I don't even have to admit how old I am with a statement like that because no matter how young or old you are, more than half of a lifetime is an impressive amount of time. Like, if you are 20 years old, and have been sewing for more than half your life, then you started sewing before you were 10! Sounds cool, right? And if you're 50, that means you have been sewing for at least 25 years, and that also sounds cool, in my opinion).
Anyway, I like to sew anything and everything from quilts, clothes, home decor, and bags. Down the rabbit hole I went when I started collecting old sewing machines and fixing them up, that I decided I needed to leave my career in Supply Chain Managment and find a way to make sewing a full-time occupation! In 2016 I started Atelier Fiber Arts to teach others how to sew, and then in February, 2019, I stopped teaching and launched the most "fussy cut" quilt subscription club in Canada - the Quilter's Stash Builder Box!
Fussy cutting is when you want to feature a specific part of a print in your sewing project, rather than cutting pieces of fabric, randomly. My boxes are not assembled at random. Fabrics and notions are bright and colourful and chosen to coordinate with each other. Your preferences can influence my fabric selections, so I encourage you to let me know what your favourite colour(s) are!
Feel free to contact me to say hello. I'm friendly and approachable and love to talk about fabric and quilting, (and pets, and nature, and painting, and woodworking, and delicious food, and travel...)
