Ottawa, Canada

I have been sewing since I was a very little girl. My grandmother taught me how to sew, knit, crochet and embroider. I love the creative process and I often try out new things. My two daughters are in rhythmic gymnastics and I started making their costumes about three years ago. I love making the costumes, because you can be as creative as you wish. I even paint and airbrush them.
