I am a fiber artist and a pattern designer from Southern Ontario, Canada. Coming from a family of textile engineers, I was surrounded by fabrics and yarns from the time I was born, which made sewing feel natural to me. I bought my first sewing machine at age of 12 and by my late teens I learned to sew custom clothing and draft my own patterns from measurements; I also made my first quilt about that time. However, my real quilting journey began in august 2015, inspired by a group of quilters at the Fergus Scottish Festival.
I love working with fabrics and yarns to express my ideas. Quilting, sewing, crocheting, knitting – is my happy place. Happy Quilting!
