I am originally from Sofia, Bulgaria. I live since 2000 in Kassel – a middle size city in Germany. I came here to study architecture and I almost did the distance. My last exam is in march, so there is a limited number of sewing sessions till then.

1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I was born in Milano Italy and have lived here all but one year (I spent my 16th year near St.Louis in Missouri). I wish I could leave this gray, noisy, polluted town, but it seems as Milano has the power to hook you in the back and never let you go. Also because of my job (graphic design in the fashion and art field) this is the place where I have to live.

1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I am a molecular biologist who was born in Japan. I am married to a husband, who is also a molecular biologist. He has been very supportive to my sewing and taken all photographs of my creations. We moved to UK 10 years ago with our daugther as we both got jobs as researchers there and stayed for about 5 years. Since we came back to Japan, we have been living in Mishima city. I started sewing half a year later after coming back to Japan, because I could only find similar clothes in similar colors with only 1 or 2 average sizes in the shops. I didn’t like those clothes, besides, they didn’t have my size. Eventually I stopped moaning and decided to make myself what I want to wear instead. 3 years ago, I went to see a color analyst who tells which colors would suit you by seeing your colors of eyes, skin, hair, etc.,
thinking knowing what color would suit me might be useful for sewing. She then condemned me to stop wearing bold colors and black. She also showed me the colors that suit me perfectly, and I had to admit I was way too far better in pink and pale blue. The effect of the colors on my face was too obvious. As I had been such a black wearer, I was utterly flattened by the verdict. My wardrobe was full of blacks at that time. But I realized for the first time that I had been wearing what I thought was cool, not what was making myself look better. I started to wear soft pale colors experimentally and my life has changed so much. I’m getting lots of compliments on what I wear (not on me, that’s the point I have to laugh at), and I’m happy with myself looking a bit better, now.

1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I was born in Romania in a city (Oradea) only 20 km from the Hungarian border; many people who live there are hungarian, my family as well, so my mother tongue is hungarian. I learnt romanian later at the childrengarden and basic school.

I moved to Sweden when I was 20 years old, so my passport and my university degree are swedish. Much later, when the idiot at Scania told me I didn’t have the right education when solicitating for a job as engineer in scientific computing (I am a MSc in guess what? Scientific Computing!!) I gave up on both trying to find a job in Sweden and my precious education.

I took a job in the pharmaceutical industry as modeling & simulation scientist (pharmacokinetics) in Germany in 2004. It didn’t klick though with my (actually dutch!) boss, so I started working and living in the Netherlands, Nijmegen in 2005 and do that ever since.
