What was your first handmade experience?My mother and grandmother taught me how to create at a young age. When I was around 2 years old my grandmother gave me some plastic canvas, embroidery floss and a needle. She taught me basic stitches and how to create my own designs. This instilled a love of hand embroidery that has led to a lifetime of pursuing this passion. From the time I was little I was encouraged to step out and create. This has helped shape me into the person I am today.
What would you tell your future self? Don’t be afraid to try something new. Whether it’s a design concept or material it’s worth trying.
Which do you prefer: Tacos or Pizza? Tacos! With fresh flour tortillas, chopped tomato, sour cream and sharp cheddar cheese.
