How I Got Started

Me and Grandma

My grandmother (shown above) taught me how to crochet, hand-quilt and sew. So how I got started making bags is pretty simple. I loved the look of quilted bags and wondered if I could make one. It turns out, I could!! I started with a large tote bag pattern and my Grandma's old singer sewing machine and the bag turned out pretty well so made a handbag. After that the orders started coming in from family and friends. So it's been three and a half years since I started and I've made over 350 bags and they are floating around all over the country and even some in Europe!
