I am a better wife and mother when I've had time to sew  



I first learned to sew and knit when I was just a tiny girl in Waldorf School around the age of 5.  Though I can only say I dabbled in fabric crafts as I continued through the rest of my education, it was nevertheless, a valuable foundation for me to begin again and build a business on as an adult.  When I was pregnant with my littlest daughter several years ago, a strong desire to create arose and I got out the sewing machine, knitting needles and stitched her a wardrobe.  I can still recall the sense of euphoria I felt as I stitched together my first little dress.  It was plainly clear then, as it is now, that sewing is something that brings me a lot of joy.  So the desire to create and to work with fabrics persisted even after my baby was born and I found very quickly as I partook in the wonderful wealth of independent designer's across the globe, that although there was some pretty inspiring creativity and expertise, as well as a lifetime of patterns to choose from, I just wasn't satisfied with merely sewing others designs. I found myself with specific design ideas and searching for long hours for a pattern that matched.  Eventually it became obvious that the best option was to create the designs that I was searching for myself. 

For the past few years I have been focused on learning to design and draft sewing and knitting patterns and plan to one day open my own online pattern shop here at Three Pink Threads.

about me

I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend, a spiritual aspirant, an artist and a writer.  I am also a life long vegetarian, aspiring vegan, and a strong supporter of freedom for all animals especially those suffering at the hands of human beings.  I have three children, my oldest of whom, has a profoundly disabling disease and has opened a special place in my heart for people with physical, emotional and mental challenges.
