What do you design/make, & what materials do you use?
Stuffed Animals, Bib & Burp sets, Pillows.
When did you start designing?
Started sewing at 8 yrs old. I mixed & matched pattern pieces to create my own designs. I have a BFA in Fashion from Syracuse University w/ a minor in textile design.
Is this your full-time gig? If not, how do you make time to create in your hectic life?
I work 2-3 days a week in a family-owned fabric store selling sewing machines & teach classes on how to use them. In addition, I teach computer software that allows you to design and digitize your own creations. I don't sleep much and work like crazy creating & sewing on my days off!
What are you working on right now?
Baby quilts with appliques to coordinate w/ my stuffed animals, also kids appliqued t-shirts w/ fun animal faces for spring and some doggie toys!
