Why I do What I do
My mother taught me how to sew when I was a little girl, and I have been designing and sewing ever since then. Fabrics, sewing and design are all things that I am passionate about.
About 15 years ago I needed a new duvet cover for my bed. I shopped around, found one I liked, bought it and brought it home. I put my duvet in it and had it on my bed for a week. The first time I washed it, I carefully followed the manufacturer’s directions. When I took it out of the dryer, I noticed it looked a little funny. It was very wrinkled, so I laid it on my ironing table. It had twisted and shrunken so much that it was impossible to lay flat or even iron. In fact, it was no longer usable. Being a seamstress, I knew what had happened. The layers of the duvet cover had not been cut out “on grain”, that is, not cut out straight along the grain of the fabric. The fabric print was probably not printed “on grain” to begin with. When items are mass produced this type of care and attention to detail are overlooked. We’ve all had a T-shirt or top that after one washing, the side seams seem to wrap around your body instead of going straight down the sides! It’s frustrating and a waste of money and the earth’s resources when this happens.
