"When I was 5 years old, my mother taught me how to make a basting stitch. From that moment on, I was enamoured with sewing. Soon I learned how to make doll clothes and not long after, clothes for people.
"Over the years I've sewn many things, including slippers, shoes, undergarments, sportwear, outerwear, and even some formal wear and dog coats. Eventually I enrolled in the Stratford Career Institute and after years of studying in the evening and over weekends while working during the day, I earned a degree in Sewing & Dressmaking.
"Every day, when I walk into my work area, I can't help but smile. It's like walking into a rainbow. After all these years, I still can't believe that I get to make a living by sewing."
