Where stuff happens
Will sew for wine
Bernice, my 1964 Wolf dress form, poses in my studio, waiting
for me to lavish her with my latest ideas in fabric.
Welcome! Just a bit of insight into my world of purses, totes, costumes, hats, aka 'stuff'.
Stuff is good. If you have too much, or don't use it, stuff is bad. If you get rid of stuff you don't need or want, you make room in your life for new stuff. Not to confuse new stuff with more stuff, because you don't want too much stuff. Stuff is important to our everyday lives, as our own stuff is very personal and meaningful to our individuality.
My interpretation of stuff is in the form of purses, totes, costumes, hats, pouches, and whatever else I decide to make out of all the fabulous stuff in my sewing studio. I like to make stuff you need, but with an artistic approach to complement your own taste and personality. If you ask me, I think you just gotta have a great purse to stash your stuff in.
So when I make stuff, I like to wonder where the piece might end up. In what part of the world will it become a beloved piece of someone's stuff stash? I do enjoy making stuff!
Bernie waits in my studio while I cut out a leather zipper pouch for
him. Sorry Bernie, I don't do mittens.
