After many years working as an apparel designer in the Toronto fashion industry, I started a handmade business of patchwork items, project bags, tote bags and leather goods. Every piece is designed, drafted and crafted by the lake near Toronto, Ontario in Canada.
I am a sewist, quilter and knitter constantly dreaming about colour and pattern. I collect sketchbooks, recipes, fabric and ideas. I love camping in my vintage Argosy trailer with my high school sweetheart husband and our two boys. Life is always busy and making things is an important part of each and every day for me.
It's my goal to create pieces that are unique and thoughtful, with special attention paid to workmanship and quality. It makes me happy to know that makers are housing their beautiful projects or keepsakes in one of my by the lakeside bags.
