Sara’s love of handmade design began as a small child playing with
fabric scraps under her mother’s sewing machine. She started her first
quilt at age 14 using those same fabric scraps. Since then, she has
enjoyed many handmade arts including sewing, quilting, needle arts,
scrap booking, and reclaimed/re-purposed projects.
In 2011, Sara joined her Mom in a quilt shop venture and was instantly
bit by the design bug. Her first creations grew out of a basic need for
class projects and to sell fabric already on the shelves. However, it
soon blossomed into more. Now Sara’s designs focus on projects that look
difficult but always have a trick or twist that make them fun to make
and not hard at all.
Born and raised in Ontario, Canada. Sara now lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband, David, and daughter, Mackenzie. Family is everything to Sara and spending time with family rock climbing, eating a good dinner together, or playing games around the table are some of her favorite things.
