What is your dream sewing project?
There are so many things on my drawing board! I would love one day to become a lingerie designer, so an actual collection that I had designed and made patterns for would be my dream. Also, I’d like to think that in the future, if I get married, I would make my own wedding dress. I think that has to be the ultimate sewing project, doesn’t it?!

Where are you from and where do you live? What do you do other than sewing?
I was born in Austria, in a small town called Innsbruck. For the last 12 years, I have lived together with my beloved husband and my cat in Berlin, Germany. Due to a cronic illness (polyneuropathy), I had to stop working about 5 years ago and that brought me to sewing.

Where are you from and where do you live?
I grew up in the country part of Victoria, Australia and moved to the crazy-beautiful city of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia 11 years ago. Melbourne is a city made up of an exciting mix of art, music, hidden restaurants and amazing coffee, and is magically able to produce four seasons in one day.

Where are you from and where do you live? What do you do other than sewing?
I live in Baden, a little town in the Northern part of Switzerland, close to the German border. Baden is the German word for “bath,” and it really used to be the equivalent of the British Bath.

Where are you from and where do you live? What do you do other than sewing?
I’m from Highland, Utah, and I’m actually living in my childhood home, my parents moved away, and my husband and I were appointed the caretakers. Other than sewing, I really like to cook, garden. Currently, I’m trying to exercise regularly, but I just hate doing it. I also used to own a tailoring shop that I sold just a month ago.

I was born in Surrey, England but eventually settled in West London where I work as a freelance Graphic Designer. My work is very creative and varied, and I currently have the absolute pleasure of designing childrens books. That said, I crave sewing time and my obsession grows by the day!

Where are you from and/or where do you live now? What do you do other than sewing?
I’m from a small village near the city of Bergamo, North of Italy. I studied History of Art at Milan University and “Tailoring for Showbiz” at Teatro alla Scala Academy. I’ve also worked in Rome for a few weeks at a costume house that are preparing costumes for a Turandot opera. My plan, though, is to open my own handmade shop. That’s my dream!
